Nachdem mir Mozilla freundlicherweise ein Geekphone zugeschickt hat kann ich nun meinem Versprechen nachkommen, Linz Pflückt auf Firefox OS zu portieren. Daher gibts jetzt unser Projekt zur Darstellung aller Obstbäume der Stadt Linz im Mozilla Marketplace von wo es auf Handys mit Firefox OS – aber auch lokal am Desktop als Webapp (ab Firefox 16) – installiert werden kann.

Linz Pflückt shows more than 2000 public fruit trees in the city of Linz. The basic data comes from the open data portal which was launched as part of the Open Commons Region Linz. The dataset contains information on species, genus, tree height, etc. which we extended with information such as maturity and fruit category.
The fruits of the trees are freely available public domain, which may be picked and eaten by every person! Look at the trees and enjoy the taste of the fruits!

The project was built using free software frameworks as OpenStreetMaps, leafletjs and WordPress.

The idea comes from The ReCode Project, a community-driven effort to preserve computer art by translating it into Processing and publishing it on Github. Started by Matthew Elper and Kyle McDonald, it aims to make computer art available to contemporary artists to learn from, share, and build on. Read the rest of this entry »
