LinguaSnapp Melbourne is a project to develop a multilingual landscape map of Melbourne, Australia. We are trying to find the hotspots where more than one language is in common use, and what those languages are. Our app users help us discover this information, by, when walking down the street, reporting any sign, poster, leaflet or other text that is written in more than one language. We are interested in towns and cities from outside Melbourne too, in fact anywhere in the world!

This map displays all the photos that have so far been collected by our app users. Browse it using the search boxes on the left hand side.

Search for multilingual photographs taken by our contributors. You can use these drop-down boxes to refine your search. Use CTRL-click (CMD-click on a Mac) to select more than one item in a box, or to deselect an item.
By default your search will find only photos that contain ALL of the chosen languages/alphabets. Check the box below to find photos with ANY of the chosen languages; the map will use different markers to show which languages a photo has.
