1. Current status of memberships and databases
2. Best technical possibilities to include and later update the info about cemeteries
Since we expect further growth in membership, We have found it important to create a system that will simplify management of all the content regarding cemeteries. No less we find it important to make this data avaliable for research and simple to archive.
With this in mind we have decided for a system of dispersed content. Each member (organization that manages the cemeteries and pays the membership) will receive access to the Google map describing it's cemetery. Access will be granted to the person that is recognized as the administrator within member's organization. If there are more cemeteries a member manages, they can add cemeteries to the map. ASCE secretariat will build first map upon the information we currently have (in the website or otherwise). Each member can then update that information on the map.
After a member updates the map, we will import the map to the main map of Significant Cemeteries of Europe and it will be presented at the map.
We will do the same with photo material. We will produce albums of photos for each cemetery and members administrators will receive access to upload photos and further manage the album (edit annotations, photo geo-position, authors,...). After the albums are updated, we will post them on the website, as well as use the photos from albums for other occassions.
Beside creating a well-maintained content base, we expect following benefits to the members:
- Maps that can be used anywhere in the internet
- Photos that can be used anywhere in the internet
