guerilla remote sensing @EGEA Euromed 13

9 May 2013

The workshop Lisa and me taught at the EGEA Euromed Regional Congress 2013 dealt with citizens’ cartography, and how civil rights groups would use (online) maps to boost their messages. As a practical (“early morning”) part of the workshop, we followed Jeffrey Warrens guide to grassroot mapping, and built a low cost kite from garbage bags. Although there was literally no wind at all, we tried flying it – and it was great fun. The resulting images, well – see for yourselves 😉

well, a lot of feet, short time low in the air, but a spect… – wait for it – …tacular crash in the end 😛
