The design brief for SNOUT was to create a 'scavenged' website, on the theme of
environmental sensing, by using and combining existing web tools, services and
online content into a new format. The SNOUT site aimed to encourage action in
two ways: firstly, the site aimed to inform its audience about local issues of
environmental pollution and potential action for change that people might take
in response to these and secondly, the site acted as an example of the process
of scavenging, illustrating how existing web-based tools and information can be
combined to create a new product.
Figure 5.3 shows the website.
