CKK is unique in that it provides for instant desktop analysis of potential impacts of industrial development on traditional land use, species habitat, and any areas of importance to a community. This fully customizable referrals/consultation tracking and management system is configured to suit and support each community’s specific needs and consultation process. The CKK also provides a comprehensive digital community archive for documents, photographs, audio, and video files.
Create an unlimited number of Research Project pages containing interviews, workshops, and fieldwork information from community members. Each of these pages stores notes, photos, audio and video files with built-in media players and maps of Traditional Use (TU) Values identified through Google Earth, GIS, or GPS.
Video clips and photos can be added to mapped sites, creating an interactive map with TU Value labels, links to individual TU Value pages, and associated video and photos. Additionally, detailed species profiles can be used to track and monitor species habitat location and impacts of development.
The CKK is the only consultation/referrals tracking software that integrates web-based mapping technologies, compatible both with GIS and Google Earth, and existing Traditional Use data to empower communities to efficiently respond to referrals/consultation from industry and government. As a result, the entire referrals/consultation review and response can be completed entirely online through the CKK.
The CKK manages the review process for Environmental Assessment, Traditional Use Sites Impact Assessment, impact on animal habitats, Trapline holders, etc. The CKK also provides a response letter mechanism for writing and sending responses to industry on a per consultation/referral basis. Response letters and other communications conducted through the CKK are automatically tracked and stored in a consultation record.
Keeping digital records of community documents, photos, audio and videos provides a rich resource for young and old community members.
The CKK archive is a robust and user-friendly place to upload and view all multimedia content categorized by type, author, date, keywords, etc. A simple search function allows users to easily find documents site-wide as the contents of all PDFs and Word documents are text-searchable within the CKK.
