Volcano Voices is an interactive mapping tool developed in/with communities living in volcanic environments in Chile, Argentina, Peru and Nicaragua. It contains full 360 degree images of various locations, in which are embedded audio recordings of interviews with community members about their experience of disasters, their perception of landscape and environment, cultural elements or any point considered by the interviewees as important to tell about their territory. Other embedded content may include photos, videos, links to online resources, and text information.
This tool allows more in-depth descriptions thanks to a better connection to the environment, and easier access to multiple locations. It also facilitates a non- (or at least less) extractivist approach, bringing back to the territory some of the knowledge acquired through the interview process. Volcano Voices is being developed for local museums and as online content on the Department of Geography website at the University of Cambridge.
