Life After Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee: Using Augmented Reality to Renew Local Communities

AerialImage2_Irene.jpg

In late summer 2011, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee left extensive damage in the Capital Region, especially along creeks and riverbeds. In the aftermath, several communities, including the Village of Schoharie, worked to pick up the pieces, while dealing with the impact of extreme flooding, rainfall, and power outages. The impact was very personal for Lillian Spina-Caza, lecturer in the Department of Communication and Media at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, who is a Schoharie resident. Today, with assistance from a $90,000 grant from the New York State Council of the Arts, Spina-Caza and Schoharie Area Long Term Inc., (SALT) are working to develop the “Geo to Go” interactive website and augmented reality (AR) arts, cultural, and heritage trails project.
