Wander Anywhere

Leveraging experience of developing authoring support tools in previous Anywhere projects, Wander Anywhere is a web-based platform that allows users to create and manage collections of location-based media through a web-browser to create novel mobile experiences.

To build on the interest in Anywhere 2, I redesigned Anywhere 2 from scratch to be more scalable and maintainable. Specifically, I now use WordPress as a content management system, having extended it to support location-based content and to open up a location-aware API to deliver Anywhere content to other web applications.

The public content hosted on the Wander Anywhere platform is currently browsable at http://www.wanderanywhere.com, and the API for accessing and querying the content can be found here.

In the quest to produce more case studies to demonstrate the value of location-based media through Wander Anywhere, I am working on two projects: Art in Your Park with Theresa Caruana, and Wander Thoresby with James Parkinson from the Stonebridge Trust and Gaby Neher from University of Nottingham.
