As part of the Anzac Centerary Project run by the Victorian Government, Public Records Office Victoria embarked on a project to digitise the records of return soldiers who were allocated parcels of land for farming. It was decided that a website would be setup so users can search and view these records online

The Challenge

  • Store and index over 10,000 digital files
  • Create an intuative interface so users can easily find relevant records
  • Find a way to interact with users and allow 2 way communication

The Solution

  • Create a custom architecture to allow the ingestion of 10,000 records and associated image files
  • Utlises a simple keyword search interface so users can research by name
  • Utlise visual mapping technologies to allow users to browse via locaitons
  • Engage with users by allowing them to contribute to the site via comments, transcriptions, image submission and corrections
