  • Trailmark is a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service platform for Indigenous communities’ cultural and natural resources management, with a modest but active user community in northern and western Canada, Australia, and several communities in the US. Trailmark was started by a group of social and systems ecologists and software developers in 2014. Because of investments of vision and time from Indigenous partners, Trailmark has evolved rapidly to suit Lands and Cultural Heritage Departments. This has been no small feat in a field dominated by aggressive multinational geospatial monopolies, on the one hand, and, on the other, by well-funded but un-scalable open-source products. In this presentation, Peter Evans will talk about the development of Trailmark’s functionality as an expression of the challenges Indigenous communities face in managing cultural resources information and knowledge, and some of the challenges of developing the software in this field. Peter Evans is a historical geographer and anthropologist and one of the founders of Trailmark Systems.
