Heritage in… Quick App

JSON Check & Publication

The Heritage in… Quick App project promotes cultural heritage collections in small and medium cities through open data and crowdsourcing.

It’s free, open-source, and collaborative

Any city can implement its own application in a few hours. They only need one or more experts to feed the first version of the database.

If you are interested, please visit the main repository with the methodology and the templates, and explore some existing implementation examples.

This project’s documentation, content, and data folders are licensed under a CC-BY license.

All other code in this repository is licensed under the MIT license.


These apps are based on open data and automatic processing of the data. The community’s content is enriched and curated, so it’s available to anyone who wants to get involved. Local experts are welcome to refine the definitions, names, and pictures and add new points of interest to the app.

The app doesn’t collect any personal data, so relax. We won’t sell anything.

The app may perform a call to a Matomo instance to measure its performance, but no personal data is shared. You can just check the code that generates a random identifier.


Do you want to contribute to the code?

Just fork the repository and start sending your contributions. The code of the quick app is in the /quick-app folder of the repository.

Feel free to raise issues on the code.
