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.
A hugh amount of information about Mars is already available, but most of the information might be confusing for non-experts. With our app we want to help to connect informations from Earth and Mars and thereby raise the people's imagination to live on Mars.
The app Marsify Earth lets you select a place on earth on a Map or by entering the name of a city and shows then where it is located on Mars and how it looks there. Furthermore, we great an overlay of the actual place on Earth and the place on Mars: You see how the streets, rivers, etc. would look on Mars.
With our solution, we want arbitrary people to create a personal connection to Mars.
The app can be found at: http://isabella.delphinus.uberspace.de/marsifyearth
We used the Wolfram API for our project.
