Announcing Photos of the Beltline

I am pleased to announce the public availability of a site that I have been working on for over a year now. Photos of the BeltLine is a project of Ruth Dusseault, Artist in Residence at the Georgia Tech College of Architecture, designed to engage college-level students and instructors from around Atlanta in the collaborative effort of documenting the BeltLine and its surrounding territory as it evolves.

Created using the lovely Ruby on Rails, the site integrates the Google Maps API to provide a means for the photographers to place their work on a map of the BeltLine. While the current exhibition features are fairly basic, enhancements are planned that will allow visitors to more easily find photos based on several criteria, including the date they were taken and the user who uploaded them in addition to a full text search.

Beginning tonight, January 10th, there is an exhibit entitled Re\constructing Atlanta: A Contemporary Continuum at the Georgia State University Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design Gallery, located at the corner of Peachtree Center Ave and Gilmer St downtown. Coverage of the site and the event has been featured in Monday’s AJC, as well.
