The Loki online service (www.lokistories.fi), implemented by the John Nurminen Foundation, is free and open for all. Loki features a map where stories shared by private individuals and marine organisations are collected, together with the most interesting content offered by museums, and tips for places to visit along the Finnish coastline and in the archipelago. The design of the map-based Loki service focuses on a user experience that is as fluent and communal as possible. Anybody can log their marine story to the Loki map. If you do not feel like making an entry of your own, you can immerse yourself in the service also just by browsing the log entries of others.
The Foundation’s partners in the project have included the Åland Maritime Museum, the Forum Marinum Maritime Centre, the Rauma Maritime Museum, and the Maritime Museum of Finland. The Project is financed with the assistance of the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation, the Weisell Foundation, and the Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation.
We would love to hear feedback on the service, and provide help in any problem situations that might arise. You can send email to loki(at)jnfoundation.fi.
Order the Loki letter (only in finnish) to your email and stay on the map! The Loki letter, sent out approximately five times a year, highlights the best contents and hints for field trips featured in Loki, informs about new features of the service, and of other current issues of interest. Sign up for the letter by sending an email to loki(at)jnfoundation.fi. Write ‘Loki letter’ in the heading of your email.
Loki is free for all private individuals, organisations, and businesses. Registration is free, as is browsing and making entries.
With Loki, organisations have an easy and free channel that reaches people who spend their free time in the archipelago and on the coastline. If your organisation’s objectives include reaching the Loki target group, it is absolutely worth your while to use Loki as a publication channel.
Loki entries on the Loki web site are saved in a database that users can browse, using the map, keywords, and the search functionality. Moreover, Loki actively highlights Loki entries and their authors in social media – you can reach thousands of people with a single Loki entry. Loki is also a great way to build interactive communications with your target audience.
Loki is a non-profit service, and its objective is to strengthen the connection between people and their cultural heritage, and to create an interesting and active community for the friends of the sea.
