Comments Off on Historypin – Mapping the Past

Are you a photographic detective? Do you want an easy way to set up a family history with an annotated photo gallery? Historypin is a wonderful tool that allows you to pin photographs, videos and audio to a digital map. It also allows you to overlay photographs on Google streetview, providing a comparison between the present and the past. You can also browse through or search via an interactive map, what other people and organisations have ‘pinned’ e.g. State Library of NSW. Discover how to get started with this tool and begin pinning content – requires a Google account. Certainly something we are going to explore, to share some of our extensive collection of historical photos of Yamba and district.
