Number of People: 1+
Basic Skill List: Photography, technical capability, time management, working to a brief, meeting project deadlines.
What skills are needed to create a project of this level?
For this project you will need one participant.
The level of skill the individual taking part will need depends on the aims of the project. However, there are some fundamental skills. They need to be technically-minded enough to operate a smartphone or GPS device, and they will need basic skills in photography.
If the geotagging project is taking place in an area unfamiliar to the participant, then map-reading skills or the ability to follow directions may be necessary.
The participant is likely to need research skills in order to plan their route and decide what they want to gather on their geotagging trips. They may also need sound recording, drawing, or other data collection skills if they wish to use these to supplement their photographic geotagging. You can use apps like AudioBoo to take pictures and record sounds at once.
Since the participant is working alone, they will need strong time management skills. They will also need to be capable of working to a brief and meeting project deadlines.
