What information is available on the AHIMS for community use?
AHIMS is used by government, industry and heritage professionals who need the information for land-use planning, regulation and conservation management. It is also used by Aboriginal communities to help them manage, conserve and protect local sites and heritage. Some of the many reasons people and organisations require information from AHIMS is for natural resource management, cultural heritage assessments, archaeological surveys, development proposals, property purchases and oral history projects.
Recording of Aboriginal sites for the purpose of reporting to the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) must be completed using one of the following:
- AHIMS Aboriginal site recording mobile app (iPhone and Android)
- Aboriginal site recording form
- Aboriginal site impact recording form.
The iPhone app and the forms have been designed to fit the structure of data held in the Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System in accordance with the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974. The app and forms meet professional standards for archaeological recording of sites as well as respecting the rights of Aboriginal people to control their information within AHIMS. Other recording forms and formats will not be accepted by OEH.
