Scent is perhaps the most memorable of senses and yet the most challenging to record. You can’t snap a picture of the way garlic smells in the roasting pan or film the scent of star jasmine on a summer night. But you can describe a smell, contextualize it, and map its location.
Inspired by artist Kate McLean’s graphic smell maps of cities around the world, NoseMaps makes you the cartographer of your olfactory environment. With a simple map interface, you can pinpoint and save smells in order to increase your awareness of your surroundings and highlight moments of remembrance and delight.
