Olfactory Map

  • Olfactory Map provides information for users to discover the smells in different parts of a city, and it serves as an online platform for everyone to share and discuss their olfactory experience with other users.
     
    The concept of this application is to integrate traditional field guides with frequently used portable devices, such as smartphones or tablets. A field guide is more like a personal journal used to take down observations from the environment. The information that the users collect will be kept in their own field guide. Once we build a field guide into an application, everyone can share their personal experience with other users. Unlike a printed field guide, a portable device based application provides more interactivity during the experience.
