Maori Maps

About this Project

The Maori Maps project has the goal of reconnecting urban Maori with their roots. The website offers a platform on which information associated with marae across the country is able to be accessed searched and viewed.

Māori Maps is a portal to the marae of Aotearoa. The site offers not only map location and directions to the gateway of every tribal marae in Aotearoa, but also a digital gateway by which visitors can access sites or service run by marae.  It features a map driven interface, and allows marae to list their contact details, and photos, and for visitors to get directions to the marae.

The Maori Maps team needed a platform that would allow data associated with tribal Marae to be stored. The solution needed to allow GPS coordinates to be captured as well as providing image galleries and the ability to filter the presentation layer based on predefined criteria. The map needed to support both Te Reo and English language versions.

The redeveloped site was recently relaunched to enable more social interaction, and to allow listing of historically significant artefacts, and the collation of stories and video.  Other indigenous groups have expressed interest in the direction of the product.

News of the relaunch can be found at the following news sites:
