Guilty landscapes, an Omaha Beach/Band of Brothers geo-journey
Since I have an interest in WWII history, geography, geospatial, GPS and multimedia, I made a trace with my Garmin eTrex Legend® HCx , shot photo’s/video and uploaded all to georambling.com , one of my pet projects. You can view the trace with geotagged media there as well. I’ve also created a video with iMovie from all materials including the GPS traces (see below).
Subsequently I got a message from Google that my video was banned in Germany ! First I thought because of some swastika’s appearing (carried btw by American soldiers as a trophy after conquering Marmion’s farm), but the reason was more modern: it has to do with a long-standing dispute between Google and the German collecting society, GEMA . This makes more sense and may also explain the ads popping up to buy the music (roll over Beethoven). So it is not a “Don’t mention the war” thing. BTW I am a pacifist.
