About

Chris Reid and Andrew Farris

On This Spot is the creation of Vancouver's Chris Reid and Andrew Farris.

The app is an outgrowth of Andrew's On This Spot blog, which features then and now photographs from around the world. Andrew partnered with friend Chris to create an interactive, easy to use, and educational app that, it is hoped, will be popular with people of all ages and interests.

Chris has designed and carried through the programming for the app. Andrew has carried out the research, mapping, photography and writing to fill the app with content.

On This Spot intends to rapidly expand coverage across British Columbia and Canada in the months and years to come.
