As social networking has evolved on the World Wide Web, users have tended to gravitate towards niche communities built around shared interests. The importance of physical location and local community has been downplayed. The OurPlace 3G to 3D project addresses a gap in existing social software models by combining online communities of interest with communities of place.

OurPlace is an online mapping and visualisation project that supports local community collaboration. It enables users to upload media captured by mobile devices into its point of origin in an online map. They can then combine it within this interface into new collaborative media and narratives of place. The geographic metaphor provides a context for engaging communities in producing local media content, media sharing and co-production. It also provides the context for reading the media in relation to the local community.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
