We have exploited our freshwater supply in the name of industrial and resource development for more than a century, but are we moving toward relinquishing control over *how* and *why* we use our most valuable resource? Part 1 of ‘Whose water is it, anyway?’

For people who have stood at a monument or scanned a landscape — the Great Wall of China, for instance, or the U.S. Grand Canyon — and wondered how it looked 100 or more years ago, there is now an app for you…. and the app seems to have already landed in Newfoundland. One photo from 1938 shows a car being tugged across Newfoundland, Canada’s Placentia Gut by two small wooden boats, a method that was retired as soon as a bridge was built to provide a more efficient route. The app uses GPS to find content that has been added within a certain vicinity. Users can also browse content that has been uploaded at any location on the map. The results can be filtered by date, ranging from the 1840s (the time of the earliest photographs) leading up to the present day. Source: International Business Times
