The Location Placeholders

Placeholders were created to allow the screen to produce information and run the way the interactive map is supposed to run.  It is now in conjunction with the community and the locations with the community that students and teachers will be able to work together to continuously construct and create the imagery and video media for these locations.

Redesigns and Fixes

After installation several parts of the assembly needed to be reworked and redesigned.  The button that triggers the video LCD screen was one such problem.  A solution was created and the end result wound up working better and being much more visually pleasing.





Designing Information Box

To accompany the map students designed an informational plaque.  This creation would hold student created literature about the map and an audio recording which explains the map, the process of creation, and ways to become involved in the project.



The audio recording was created and coded onto a raspberry pi micro processor and embedded in a neat housing that was attached to the plaque.  Students developed a way to get the audio onto the mini computer and allow it to loop infinitely.

Students then designed and cut the boxes that would hold the pamphlets and hardware.


The goal is to clarify the project as a whole and create visual balance among the installation at the library.


Map construction finished!

The maps are finally poly-coated and look AMAZING!  Everyone involved did a great job in the creation of these two pieces and they will look wonderful when hung up at the library.  Special thanks to all the students that designed, cut, assembled, glued, painted, and carried these maps around.  Next up is beginning to attach the locations and wire up all the electronics.
