Geographic information system of traditional folk culture (1750 – 1900) – sophistic research infrastructure of Czech Ethnology
Languages of publication
Ethno cartography has been one of the well-established ethnology methods, because it enables to know the territorial spreading of particular cultural elements and large sets thereof on one or more time levels. Through maps, it helps identify dependences, genesis, differentiation and geographic variability in phenomena of the traditional folk culture. Some of the “Ethnography” limits can be solved by the application of modern technologies – e.g. through the Geographic Information System (GIS). The GIS of traditional folk culture 1750–1900 (Gistralik), developed by Masaryk University, interconnects the maps with the information from the field of traditional folk culture. The information is defined by place (historic land of Moravia) and time (1750–1900). The Gistralik represents a sophisticated GIS in the form of a database in the 3D form, that makes accessible the knowledge about documented phenomena from the field of tangible and intangible folk culture as well as about the stage of their hitherto processing. The Gistralik allows the scientists as well as others interested in the theme of cultural heritage to use a large volume of professional data that the users will explore by means of different degrees of preconditions, which enables to generate various groups of information as to their content and form.
