Kickstart Art on Google Maps

geocodedArt has been busy mapping the world's fine art paintings for the last few years. Their website provides a great way to explore some of the world's great artistic masterpieces geographically with a Google Map.

geocodedArt now want to develop a smartphone application that will allow users to find and explore paintings of the landscape around them. The app will allow users to stand in the spot that inspired a masterpiece painting, and study the painting at the same time; to fully appreciate how the atmosphere has been captured in the art.

To help raise the funds to develop the app geocodedArt has started a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign is trying to raise $7,750. Supporters of the app can pledge from as little as $5 dollars to the campaign.
