Since the last blog post about adding custom publications for wayfinding routes we’ve made the following changes and improvements: Lists and thumbnail views for route steps, galleries and public art works along a route and objects from the SFO Museum Aviation Collection related to a flights; When supported by the browser the Web Share API has been enabled for linking to (and sharing) individual routes; The new “nearby” feature allows you to find galleries, public art works and other waypoints close to arbitrary points inside the SFO terminal complex.
The good news is that, when the airport and the museum began to resume on-site operations in earnest, the application I’d developed had been running unattended and attached to a big honking monitor for 18 months and everything still worked. The bad news was that no one wanted to touch any kind of public surface anymore.
Aside from solving an immediate technical problem we are excited about how this approach might be applied to future projects and we hope you will be too.
The goal of the “Accession Numbers” project is to compile a catalog of machine-readable patterns for identifying and extracting accession numbers in arbitrary bodies of text for as many museums and cultural heritage organizations as possible.
It may be too soon to imagine that we can make everything easy but maybe we can start to make more things at least possible.
