    ABSTRACT

    In this paper we consider ways in which images collected in the field can be used as to support sense-making. Weick's concept of sense-making is applied to the capture of images. A study is reported in which visitors to an open-air museum were asked to take photographs of aspects of the site that they found interesting. Photographs were taken using a bespoke application in which a webcam and global positioning system device, attached to a small tablet computer, are used to capture tagged images. Tagging is supported by the use of a simple menu that allows users to classify the images.
