Mapping Melbourne's Street Art

The City of Melbourne has instigated an interesting 'Do Art Not Tags' campaign aimed at educating the city's youth about the differences between street art and graffiti.

As part of the campaign the city has created an ArcGIS Story Map highlighting some of the best of Melbourne's street art. The content for the Do Art Not Tags map has been collected using ArcGIS's Collector App which allows for photos of the street art to be captured by smartphone, uploaded to Flickr and instantly added to the map.

The map itself is responsive, which allows high school students to use the map on their phones or tablet devices to easily find and visit the street art for themselves.
