Comob is a digital arts project that explores the potential for collaborative mapping with GPS technology. Comob was developed as a research tool to explore social and spatial relationships between people in motion.
'The relationships between people and spaces elicits a variety of responses, including intimacy, irritation, and exhilaration. We are interested in an awareness of where other people are and how that affects our experience of place. This workshop will look at how those relationships can be mapped, as live and moving visualisations'
Comob is an application developed for iPhones that explores collaborative mapping with GPS technology. The software allows members of a shared group to see each other’s position and movements in real time on their mobile phones.
You can download a free iPhone app ‘Comob net’ from the app store with more information on the project available at http://www.theportable.tv/contemporarycartographies. Wheres the Android app?
