#ugc, the sound of the UK

The Sound of the UK

Occasionally a really good idea emerges. And this is one.

The British Library is creating a UK Sound Map, over this year, to record the sounds across the nation and save them for posterity. The sound clip is then overlaid on Google Maps – and if recorded using a smart phone, geo-tagged.

The result of this project could result in a valuable national archive. Everyone should upload at least one clip.
