Digital maps for heritage, cultural and community projects – where the human story is at the heart of your content.
Humap is for projects which have community and heritage at their heart. You might have collected stories of a place, which you’d like to present digitally. Maybe you want people to record their own stories, through our easy to use online tools. Or you’ve got a more formally curated set of geographical content which you want to give to a wider audience.
What can Humap do?
We've built a digital platform which gathers personal stories, data, and interesting content from visitors. Presented alongside more formally curated content, Humap can tell a compelling story about places, people and artefacts. This is a digital map which is accessible and easy to use for everyone.
