Customised Environmental and Heritage Information Management Solutions

Cultural Site Management Systems developed by CSS/ESS allow indigenous communities to archive important documents, video and photographs that describe their history and culture. A mapping interface is used to record locations and characteristics of sacred sites, areas and tracks. Once these locations have been recorded, a wide range of file types and forms specific to each feature can be added. This effectively creates a “keeping place” where information is permanently archived. The system also acts as an management tool. Users of the system can be prompted to revisit, monitor and maintain culturally significant places, areas and objects.
