These presentations outline from different perspectives the experiences and issues of managing, storing and appropriately sharing cultural information
for traditional owner groups. This involves the use of technologies and surrounding methodologies to assist native title representative bodies and native title groups manage a range of information including site locations and characteristics, oral histories, native title reports, personal  biographies and language. These technologies are also being utilised to drive other business and work flow practices to assist these organisations to better manage corporate responsibilities and deal and communicate with external parties including mining companies and government.

This presentation will be divided into four parts. Part one will provide a brief overview of projects aiming to map cultural information; in part two Gunditj Mirring provide a Victorian perspective; part three will see South Australian Native Title Services talk about their experiences; and part four will highlight the approach of Rainforest Aboriginal peoples.
