City Strata is a mobile platform which enables users to explore different layers of Bristol’s heritage, going back to the first maps of the city in 1750. The platform will enable developers to author location based experiences which include user generated and uploaded content.
The platform will be protoyped with the ‘Cinemap’ layer – which provides a way of navigating the city and experiencing Bristol’s cinematic heritage in the spaces where it actually happened. From the ghost of Robert Partington-Jackson, the murdered manager of the Odeon, Union Street, to Cary Grant’s childhood cinema on Clare Street.
