Cultural Data with Context
Indigenous Knowledge information is always shared by knowledge holders with context. Many modern approaches to recording this knowledge reduces it to features on a map without context. LOUIS Heritage is stores the text, audio, video, photos and map features together to ensure that the data is an accurate representation of the shared knowledge and context is preserved. Once in the system, this information can be searched extensively and the context of areas of use is always available.
Each part of each interview has its own privacy setting to enable that private information is kept private. Similarly participant information can be protected when making maps and reports to promote community perspectives.
Intuitive Organisation and Flexible Design
LOUIS Heritage organises information by Projects to match real world research projects. With those projects interviews are the next level of organisation and can have or more many participants depending on the nature of the project.
Within projects, custom coding for Use and Occupancy types of research, but other options such as times of year, use periods and custom fields can be defined to address other study designs.
Mobile Support and Easy Import of Existing Data
Data can be collected using our mobile app as well as existing data can be easily imported to ensure that past work is incorporated.
Places with Indigenous names are good indicators of long-term occupancy. LOUIS Heritage provides the means to record these appropriately and link them to interviews and use their often multi-lingual synonyms for effective searching.
