Alternative Mexico: A Mobile Application for the Preservation of Mexico's Heritage
Author(s): Sandra Lopez Varela
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
"México Alternativo" is a mobile application for iOS and Android platforms, drawing from the need to preserve and promote contemporary heritage resources that are of great value to Mexico’s citizens. Infrastructure building and promotion of urban lifeways to modernize and strengthen Mexico’s economy, has resulted in the appropriation by its citizens of modern spaces, with the inevitable creation of new heritage values. "México Alternativo" records people’s contemporary heritage values, hoping to play an important role in articulating the need for effective, sustainable and responsive preservation models contemplating all forms of heritage, creating a more agreeable partnership between Mexico’s citizens and institutions.
