Cloud Photograph Archive and Social Media Management
A second look at the back end of the cloud based photo/image management system for the Bird Explorers project.
The hybrid system leverages Amazon S3 and Google Drive storage to create a redundant archive of new photos that facilitates social shares and website updates.
A Google Drive spreadsheet also serves as a shared index for the Amazon S3 buckets. This makes collaboration on images including adding descriptions and notes easy. Team members do not need AWS account credentials since the photos under review for the website and social platforms are stored in a public bucket.
