In December 2012 Jennifer Parker and Adam Heet from the Architecture Library, along with colleagues from Hesburgh Library and Academic Technologies, traveled to Seaside, Florida to continue work on the Seaside Research Portal.
Three members of the team worked primarily on aerial photography-taking Gigapans from a 35-foot lift and aerial panoramic photos from a camera strapped to a helium balloon. This will allow the team to create a virtual tour of Seaside. They also took still photos of each building and structure in Seaside and mapped the GPS coordinates for Seaside's streets. The photos and GPS will be combined to build a map tool to help users study the town's urban development.
