Ahmat, Faridah (2006) Developing the kiosk application system : a model of batik origin spatial knowledge display / Faridah Ahmat. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


This research project is about constructing the Batik Origin Spatial Knowledge
Display which will be uses for the kiosk application system. It will become an
alternative way to display the information for the batik artifacts. Hence, the research
also provided a knowledge sharing on batik with the museum visitors, prior to the
gallery walkthrough. The objectives of this research project are to identify the data
requirements needed for spatial knowledge display for the batik origin, to identify the
chronological and historical fact for batik influence trail and to design the spatial
information knowledge displays for the batik origin. Main data collection for this
research is from the historical books on batik. From this source, the researcher
gathered the historical and spatial information on batik origin. Then, the interviewed
conducted with the batik expert to confirm and add some new information. After
perform the documentation analysis, the researcher has identified the chronological
and historical facts for the batik origin and it is presented by using the batik influence
trail. Besides that, the research also comes out with the spatial information for the
batik origin that will be used in developing the batik origin spatial knowledge display.
Meanwhile, this research will refer to the batik knowledge mapping technique to
present the spatial information for the batik origin on the digitized map. As a
conclusion, the researcher found that this research project is beneficial since it can be
used as a medium to share and manage knowledge on batik origin effectively.
