Project Monadnock is a historical education app that is currently being developed by Newpast™ which uses your location to connect you to the surrounding community and local history.
The city of Burlington, VT will be the first featured location as part of this experience Newpast™ is developing. Users will interact with pins, placed on a real-world map of Burlington, that show the location of historical events and places. Photo courtesy of the Champlain College Library Special Collections.
Through developing Project Monadnock, Newpast™ is pursuing its goal of creating a wider understanding of history, by allowing users to find and explore the history around them. The pins on the map within the experience represent the location of an historical event and describe what the event was. These pins in Project Monadnock are created by Newpast™ as part of our pre-made experiences, including museums, galleries, local businesses, or other physical places to help represent their histories. The experience will also include the ability to post pins by you, our users.
As Project Monadnock is currently in the Alpha Phase of development and testing, Newpast™ will move towards Beta testing in a few months. If you are interested in becoming a Beta tester for this new experience, please reach out below.
Newpast™ will advertise local businesses and other groups through this app, allowing them to connect with more locals and tourists, to enhance their experiences. If you would like your business or group represented on this revolutionary location-based advertising platform, let us know.
How are we different? Compared to other social medias, Project Monadnock places your posts on a map, represented by pins. The places that these pins are located are based on where you were standing at that time. Photo courtesy of the Champlain College Library Special Collections.
