Street food and the app

There is a really nice post at City of Sound that describes the use of a map based App to experience a day of street food in Helsinki. Here the data and visualisation augment the space so that the user can locate the food and restaurants. An example of what William J Mitchell called an information overlay. It’s also a good example of how mobile devices and software can shape experiences of place.
