System architecture — Urban Archive

I am a founding team member of Urban Archive, a New York City based nonprofit. We are working to organize and display the digital collections of local museums and historical foundations, in a way that benefits the institutions and educates the public.

My main focus has been on digital archiving and collection management tools. This includes a content management system that we use to enrich museum collections by locating, tagging, and writing about them.

In October 2019 I released the first version of our web application, which soft-launched over the summer for creating Jane’s Walks. For the previous 3 years, the service had only been available to iOS users!
