Places are what Placebook is about. Showcasing schemes that enhance and influence the human environment, Placebook presents views and details of places, and allows users to comment.
When you view a Place, you are shown a View chosen from any "view" images that have been uploaded.
Details are any elements that make up a Place. These are uploaded separately from Views and will be searchable. For example, it will be possible to search for all examples of "signage" and see examples of signage, as well as the places where they have been used.
Placebook is intended to be a visual and interactive web site about Places, to help anyone interested in the human environment explore ideas about what makes a Place. It presents urban planners with the opportunity to showcase Views of their Places, and the Details that make them special. Placebook will also serve as a "sourcebook". Planning or building a new park? Placebook will help you find inspiration and show you Views and Details from similar Places - and the opinions of those that have left Comments.
