Welcome to the Forum on Information Standards in Heritage
This site will be of interest to anyone involved in recording information about the history, heritage or current state of the many thousands of buildings, monuments, archaeological sites, wrecks and chance discoveries that together form the historic environment.
The focus for the forum is the cultural heritage of the United Kingdom and Ireland, but we welcome forum participants from further afield.
You might be an individual running a local project, or undertaking degree research, or you might be working for an organisation responsible for archaeological investigations or for managing the historic environment in your area. Whatever the case, the standards discussed in the FISH forum will help you create consistent records about your chosen subject, and will help you find the tools to index and retrieve your information. These standards become even more important if you want to share your information with others, either by sending them copies or by making it available on the internet.
