S2 - Make heritage more accessible
Brief description of the initiative:
The John Nurminen Foundation’s new cultural Project, implemented in cooperation with the Maritime Museum of Finland, the Forum Marinum Maritime Centre, the Åland Maritime Museum and the Rauma Maritime Museum, creates the Loki map service, which combines sea-related imagery, stories and events on the same map. The first versions of the online service have been completed. Loki is a customer-oriented online service encompassing the full variety of Finnish maritime cultural heritage. The mapbased site will display the additions made by private and organizational users along the Finnish coastline and archipelago: these will include historical events, maritime museums and other points of interest, fascinating anecdotes, best photographs, and highlights from the Living Archive (Elävä Arkisto) of the Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE – all on the same map.
Objectives of the initiative:
With the LOKI-map service, the general public will have an easier, richer and more accessible way of finding and sharing the treasures and stories of the sea in digital format.
Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:
The first versions of the online service have been completed. Loki is a customer-oriented online service encompassing the full variety of Finnish maritime cultural heritage.
