Northwestern Plains Prehistory Database: A New CRM Tool
Publication Type:Conference Paper
Over the past two years, Parks Canada has commissioned Western Heritage Services Inc. to design and produce a tool to access and analyze Northwestern Plains prehistory through direct access to data. The project was conceived as a management and research tool that would allow users to identify resources within the study area that would relate to a wide variety of questions and management needs. The final product has the capacity to call up information on archaeological sites, historic records, cultural and natural features, and oral traditions, then sort and display textual or cartographic information. This report will outline objectives of the project, summarize how the database works, and discuss some examples of how it will be put to use.
