NoseMaps

NoseMaps is a responsive full stack web app that lets users map their olfactory environment.

Introduction

Scent is perhaps the most memorable of senses and yet the most challenging to record. You can’t snap a picture of the way garlic smells in the roasting pan or film the scent of star jasmine on a summer night. But you can describe a smell, contextualize it, and map its location.

Inspired by artist Kate McLean’s graphic smell maps of cities around the world, NoseMaps is a tool that lets user pinpoint and save smells in their environment in order to increase sensory awareness and highlight moments of remembrance and delight.
