— barcode-camphone urban geotagging
August 30th, 2005

So far, it only works in Aachen, Germany, but denCity seems like a cool new geotagging experiment for the era of sentient things (and places). The main drawback, as with Yellow Arrow, is the need to add potential pollution in the form of physical tags:

(Via information aesthetics)

Dencity Aug 4 creates virtual networks of real places.

QR-codes (2D barcodes) are used to tag buildings and urban sites. your mobile camera phone can read these tags. simply shoot them and log in to provides information to the specific place.

From there, you can browse through the web of tags. The tag is the key. Once shot, you can always return to the places, virtually. It’s the city in your pocket.

Anyone can tag places and thus create a new denCity-site.

Just log in to – create a spot on the map and print the tag to attach it to the real-world location.
