Help people of all ages learn more about Portland History and its wonderful historic buildings. Designated landmark buildings, structures, and sites could be "tagged" so people using the application could read a short history or description of the building, perhaps even a historic photograph could be included. This could be set up as either a global list of Portland landmarks or be specifically targeted toward certain areas - sort of like a self guided walking tour. It would be a great way to draw attention to places like Skidmore/Old Town.

This list of historic landmarks in Portland might prove useful for this idea: http://www.portlandonline.com/planning/index.cfm?c=44013&a=146276

Anyone want to collaborate on this one? I'd love to see it happen. I've written up some ideas here: http://elsewisestrategic.com/2010/09/exploring-portlands-history/ PS Under what license is this data available?
