Abstract:


This article reports the development of Vissou, which is a location based web application that enables media recording and sharing among users who are in close proximity to each other. The application facilitates the automated hand-over of the recorded media files from one user to another. There are many social networking applications and web sites that provide digital media sharing and editing functionalities. What differentiates Vissou from other similar applications is the functions and user interface that make it convenient for users to have their images taken by others without any effort on their part. The application can detect the other users who share the same location and enables media sharing only with users who are close to them. The application develops a synergistic integration of a number of open source code modules and frameworks to build complex functions. The project constitutes a light weight solution to a complex design problem.
