Geotagging Space and Aviation

View Solutions
54 solutions from 38 locations were created.

Collect and develop geotagged information about local ties to space and aviation to incorporate within geo-based games/web applications/tools. Many apps and programs exist that allow users to input information about a location that corresponds to the real world. Public information and historical space events could be added to the location within the program. While exploring a new region, users can learning new facts about how the community played a role in new scientific discoveries or innovations in aviation or spaceflight.


Exploration is a human endeavor and its history can be found all over the globe. While NASA and other similar agencies document moments in history, it is often kept in books, museums and visitors centers. What if you could learn about the aerospace in your place?


Sample Areas to Explore:

  • Develop location-based tools/games that unlock information/challenges etc. once a user is physically in a specific location
  • Include historical events, connections with famous researchers, people, and partnerships linking to space and aviation exploration. If possible, include media such as photos, videos, or links to more information.
  • The programs could be one(s) that require the user to be physically near the location or that allow the user to explore locations from their home computer
  • There are many many locations with ties to space and aviation, along with apps. Consider picking a focus, in the type of information, era, or location(s).

The project does not have to be a global nominee to be eligible for KSC judging. If a team was nominated for global judging and worked on a KSC challenge, it will be considered for both types of judging.
