Geotagging information in Ruhr Gebiet

For the year 2010 the Ruhr Gebiet host the European Capital of Culture entitled Essen für das Ruhrgebiet and called Ruhr2010. Among the activities celebrated by Nederlands one of them is the project Gastgastgeber. Basurama uses the Gastgastgeber's infraestructure to make its own researh project.

Basurama wants to document and investigate the buildings, materials and empty plots through georeferenced online information (photos, texts and videos). The Ruhr Gebiet, specially the Rhein-Herne-Kanal, is an ideal opportunity to discover and think about the industrial areas in the post-industrial era. The map is also a collaborative tool that alows anyone to add and update more information.
