Digital artist, net architect and interaction designer Eric Rieper recently launched a new project called It Happened Here, a Google map that people can geo-tag with their significant memories.

The project went live just a few days ago and has already gained many entries from people in different parts of the world. Some of the geo-tagged memories include entries like “This is where we met,” “This is where I lost you” and “This is where I got the courage to leave Maine and follow my dreams.” There are also romantic and poetic entries like “This is where I chased my lover’s ghost through the grey streets of Prague” and seemingly dark ones like “This is where I learned to fear.”
