CULTURAL HERITAGE SEARCH
Cultural Heritage Search (www.kulturminnesok.no) gives you an overview of cultural monuments in Norway. The pages were launched by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage in December 2009, and were revised in the spring of 2012.
Kulturminnesøk shows information on over 170,000 cultural monuments and cultural environments registered in Askeladden, and also has information and photos from several other sources and from the public.
When you ask the app to find cultural monuments near you, you get the cultural monuments on a map on the screen on your mobile phone together with more information about each cultural monument. The mobile phone helps you to find each cultural monument, which may have been quite "secret" for centuries, maybe in your own garden!
The first version of our Kulturminnesøk mobile app is available for Android and can be downloaded in Google Play.
The app shows information from Kulturminnesøk about cultural monuments in Norway. The app has three main functions: «I nærheten» (close by) shows cultural monuments where you are located in lists and on a map
«Vis meg» (show me) shows cultural monuments in the surroundings using Augmented Reality (AR)
«Utforsk» (explore) where you can filter among all cultural monuments.
You can upload pictures and add comments on cultural monuments to Kulturminnesøk directly from the app.
The current version of the app contains only cultural monument locations from Askeladden which are mapped, and not cultural environments or user-created cultural monuments.
