Cultural Resource Mapping (CRM): Exploratory Project in Kuching Division

The CRM is currently at its software development stage by the University of Technology Sarawak team under the leadership of Associate Professor Dr. Tariq Zaman from ASSET. As part of the development process, two focus group sessions were conducted with heritage experts and regular users to provide feedback on a prototype of the Crowd-sourced Heritage Automation Mapping Platform for Sarawak (CHAMPS) digital platform, and to investigate and incorporate various grassroots values into CHAMPS. Other areas such as design cues, interface elements, and graphical design were also discussed. The next phase of the project would entail appointment of Heritage Experts as well as marketing and promoting the project in preparation for public input.
