Join Historypin and UCLDH to geo-tag artworks from the Imperial War Museums’ First World War art collection.

By Simon Mahony, on 20 February 2014

Historypin is setting up shop in one of the UCL cluster rooms and asking anyone who is interested in crowdsourcing to help with geo-tag 100s of paintings around the globe.

17:30 Wednesday 26th February B29, Foster Court

We have been given access to the Imperial War Museums’ astounding First World War art collection. We need your help to geo-tag these artworks to the locations they depict. No prior knowledge of the First World War needed, just experience with online research and a desire to solve historical mysteries!

A Google, Twitter or Facebook account is all you will need.

This is unique opportunity to participate in an innovative crowd-sourcing and geo-referencing project.

More project details are on the Putting Art on the Map flyer.   

Registration is needed via Eventbrite.
