My Cross-Country Experiment with Geo-Location & Mapping

October 11, 2010

On October 10, 2010,  I started a cross country road trip from North Carolina to California in a new-to-me 1998 Volvo.

I stopped along the way to connect with members of the Detention Watch Network, detainees and their family members. I focused on collecting audio recordings of the interviews for another project I’ll share later.

I also took photos and shot short video clips for my Google Map, where you can see my route. I also added in Foursquare check-ins and Yelp reviews for good measure. And the name of the blog? I drove through regions that are covered by kudzu and sagebrush. I’m hoping to see things that might be hidden from view.

I finally arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday October 21, 2010. In total, I spent 11 days on the road and covered more than 3,500 miles.

Stay tuned for the audio project…
