Balloon Kits for Aerial Photography

ML led the launch of Public Laboratory for Open Technolgoy and Science’s first off the shelf kit, an aerial photography balloon kit. ML did everything from creating the video that launched the successful kickstarter campaign to lining up each supplier for every part to get the price below $100/kit. Once assembled, this kit enables you to collect your own aerial photos from up to 1000 ft. Using the open source MapKnitter¬†web-based software, you can stitch the resulting images into a web-viewable map — your own “counter-cartography” Google Maps.
