Methodology and obstacles during schematization of Cultural Heritage assets Version 1. BalticRIM internal status report WP 2 GoA 2.3.


As part of the BalticRIM WP2 on MSP-related mapping of maritime cultural heritage, this internal status report provides information on the methodology and obstacles relating to the task 2.3 on schematisation of Cultural Heritage assets. The report focuses on the technical issues related to the development of a digital collaboration portal and working environment that enables collaboration in the project. The data portal designed for BalticRIM is originally based on experiences, concepts and open source components developed for the BASEMAPS portal in the Baltic LINes Interreg project.

Questions this practice may help answer: 

  • What is the status of the development of the BlaticRim Data Platform and how it can be used as a collaborative platform? 
  • How to use the BalticRim Data Portal?

Implementation Context: 

The work was conducted within the scope of the Work Package 2 of the BalticRim project on the Maritime Cultural Heritage knowledge base and its smart and professional integration to MSP.

Aspects / Objectives: 

The purpose of the Task 2.3 was to schematise cultural heritage assets on the basis of national data for an overall picture by making use of a common terminology for MCH issues, including land-based MCH. 


The task includes a schematisation per partner country based on national data and a schematisation of the overall picture MCH assets per partner country. The Task 2.3 also includes a semantic Mapping of Underwater Landscapes and Underwater Heritage performed by University of Turku (Seesmeri, 2019). 

Main Outputs / Results: 

The report provides a status on the development of the BalticRIM Data Platform, in order to make it function as a collaboration platform. During the project process, data can be shared and new solutions can be tried out in a closed working environment, and at the end the BalticRIM Data Portal can function as a dissemination platform, where the map-based planning concepts and solutions developed in the project can be displayed for a broader audience.


The methodology presented can be applied in the development of data portals of other sea basins.

Responsible Entity: 

Aalborg University.

Funding Source: 

The report is developed within the framework of the BalticRIM project sponsored by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020.
