Multitouch Mapping Exhibit at Oakland Museum of California
The California Land Grab multitouch, multiuser mapping application developed for the Gallery of California History at the Oakland Museum. This exhibit allows visitors to view detailed maps and other documents from the 18th and 19th centuries.
High-resolution images along with descriptive metadata are drawn directly from Flickr into this mashup application. A scaleable magnifier tool, let's visitors view map details.
This application was developed in Adobe Flash with the GestureWorks framework for Adobe Flash and Flex. gestureworks.com
The exhibit software runs on an Ideum MT-50 "Multitouch Table which supports 60+ points of simultaneous input.
Ideum (ideum.com) worked closely with the Oakland Museum of California to create this unique interactive exhibit.
