Stratocam Takes Google Maps Satellite View to New Heights

Fast Co. Design writes of a creative app that sources the panopticon--or the archive of Google Maps Satellite View, depending on how you look at it--for a new type of global photo album. Stratocam, as the app is known, allows users to take snapshots of images from Google Maps and share them broadly across the Internet. Unadorned by overlays and the needs of users who come to the system with more pragmatic needs, Google Maps is capable of producing images of surprisingly beautiful clarity and color. As Co. Design explains, the whole exercise also raises questions of authorship, because it "divorces the moment of framing from the moment of capture in photography." The site is, of course, fully integrated into social media, and in a very contemporary move, users can vote the snapshots on the site up or down depending on their tastes in satellite imagery.
