Finding your way on the Baccalieu Trail: A Google Map Workshop

The Intangible Cultural Heritage Office is hosting a Google Maps Workshop.

On January 11th, 2011 at 7pm, Dale Jarvis and Mel Squarey with the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador are hosting a two hour workshop at the Bay Roberts Pavilion (Visitor Information Centre), on how community groups can use Google Maps to help share local folklore and oral history.

If you’ve looked for directions online, chances are you’ve come across Google Maps. Google’s “My Maps” function is a free online tool where local points of interest can be showcased in an accessible manner. We’ll show you how you can create your own map of your town or region that highlights photos, video, and audio clips about local heritage and culture.

Those individuals or groups interested in partaking in the workshop MUST pre-register by telephone at 1-888-739-1892, ext. 3. The workshop has a limit of 10 spaces, so register quickly. ALL participants of the workshop MUST bring along their own wi-fi enabled laptop.
