"Sajara® provides organizations with easy-to-use geographical tools to assist them with geo-referencing, managing, retrieving, and displaying digitized photographs, maps, audio, and video from any location in the world. Unlike other geographic Digital Asset Management solutions that use maps as the basis for the assets’ searches, Sajara uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to support location-based search and display.
Sajara lets users retrieve and organize assets by address, intersection, neighborhood, and geographic areas such as states and countries. Users can even zoom and pan around a map to view the assets located in a specific geographic area. More traditional search criteria such as keywords, tags, and time period are also available. The display of assets includes descriptive information, a map, thumbnail images, and video or audio streams, including the option to view assets in Google Maps or Google Earth.
A physically archived collection can be difficult for the public to access. With a digital archive managed by Sajara, the public can freely interact with your collection at any time, anywhere. A web-based digital collection can be an invaluable and engaging resource for local and international educators, researchers, and scholars, or people in the same field of expertise - broadening your organization's current reach. E-commerce capabilities enable users to purchase copies of your organization's digital assets as prints, digital files, or other output. Mobile tools support asset searches from Internet-enabled mobile phones and smartphones. Sajara also provides online administrative access so staff members around the globe can access and manage the collections using just an Internet connection and the simple browser interface.
By maintaining a digital catalog of your assets, Sajara can play in important role in saving, displaying, and permanently preserving a variety of documents, recordings, photographs, maps, and images. Digitization is currently the safest way to protect collections because it offers redundancy and safety from corrosion and decay. Protect your valuable collections and make them digital, searchable, and available to all with Sajara.
