Smartphone applications: What is The Peoples Collection Wales?

PCW webpage

People’s Collection Wales is an innovative bilingual digital platform to collect, interpret and display the story of Wales. The website is free to use and represents an innovative approach to collecting, interpreting and discussing Wales’s cultural heritage in an online environment.

Led by Wales’s national heritage institutions, it brings together a wide range of partners from different fields to share tools, resources, skills and expertise. The website is supported by a programme of activities to explore new and exciting ways of collecting, exploring, discovering and sharing the stories of Wales and its people.
One of its advantages is that users can create themed heritage trails, store all heritage content in a secure online space without cost, digitise documents and imagery, and also organise the content in user friendly formats and collections. Prior to publishing, content is verified and approved. A new app where this content including trails can be accessed is planned for the near future.
