What Was There?

The WhatWasThere project was inspired by the realization that we could leverage technology and the connections it facilitates to provide a new human experience of time and space - a virtual time machine of sorts that allows users to navigate familiar streets as they appeared in the past.

What Was There is a platform where anyone can easily upload a photograph with two straightforward tags to provide context: Location and Year. If enough people upload enough photographs in enough places, it will weave together a photographic history of the world (or at least any place covered by Google Maps).
