Siftr: A Tool for Local Inquiry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Jim will introduce you to Siftr (http://siftr.org), a new tool from Field Day. Siftr is a collaborative mapping web app. It is accessible from pretty much any browser, and allows authors to instantly create new containers for collaborative mapping. Jim will spend the first three minutes getting the audience up to speed on the technical side of using siftr, and use the remaining portion of the hour to help you think about how this tool can support inquiry into local places.
