Guidelines for mapping and digital documentation.
We are all familiar with interactive maps for navigation and most people have experience finding their way using technologies such as Google Maps.
Interactive mapping is a vital tool in digital heritage. Maps can tell stories of natural and cultural heritage. They can be used to present narratives of changing landscapes through history and time. They can be used to document names and locations in local culture or track where artifacts originated from and where they ended up. The migration of people and cultures can be tracked and viewed via interactive maps leading to a greater understanding through visualisation.
