My proposal is to build a traveller's journal application on top of Google Maps API, which will allow a user to organise their photo collections stored on external websites such as Flickr, Facebook, Pinterest or alike. They will be organised in two-dimensional space by physical locations and time points. Physical locations will be visualised using the Google Maps API, while the temporal component will resemble Facebook's timeline, which will allow different physical locations to be shown at different time points. All locations visited will be clickable, with links leading to the external photo albums. Similarly, there will be links leading to text documents used as diary descriptions of particular visits. Lastly, the application will be supported with Facebook and Twitter announcements to facilitate information sharing on social networks.
