Checking in with Edmonton's photo archives site

The City of Edmonton put its photographic history online when it launched a new photo archives Web site using Presto. (Check out the site.) But how are citizens taking to it since its launch a few months ago? Andy Opsahl, Features Editor for Government Technology, writes how many people are using it for personal research, such as to learn about the city's history or find photos to print and frame.

There are about 25,000 images available now on the site. Edmonton plans to add another 4,000 over the next few months. Before moving to Presto, it was storing only 10,000 photos on a cumbersome Web site that often yielded irrelevant search results. For more on how Edmonton's Presto site is working, check out the Government Technology article.
