Save your memories and stories for posterity with the Orkney Community Digital Heritage project
Orkney Community Digital Heritage is a project which will run over the summer months, where people in Orkney can get involved in capturing their memories, stories and special places using simple technology.
In the coming months, we are going to help people get started using Edina Fieldtrip, which in a simple way lets you use a mobile phone to record your memories of people, places, and stories. You can take photos or upload photos that you already have. You can write your memories down, or you can press a button and record your voice as you speak about it. The phone automatically knows where you are, using its GPS, and the information you have recorded gets put on a map of Orkney. The Centre for Nordic Studies is then going to gather what everyone has done onto a single map, on a website ready for all to enjoy.
