What is Haudi?
Behind the public Estonian Cemetery portal is the Web-based information system Haudi for cemetery management. This information system for cemetery management preserves and organizes data about the buried and makes it available to people interested in history and to the users of burial places. Haudi is integrated with the Estonian Population Register.
The idea behind the software is to gather information from all Estonian cemeteries together into one portal where people can search for the deceased all over the country. It is basically an e-cemetery where the whole history of Estonian cemeteries is retained.
People who are registered as users of a burial place can use various e-services when they log into the cemetery where they are the Burial Place User by using an ID-card. They can do the following things with the burial place: authorize a burial, add information about the deceased, correct data, change the user of the burial place, give up the burial place, etc.
The public cemetery portal also includes information about burial places that are under heritage protection. The amount of information, pictures etc is unlimited and if the cemetery wants, it can add pictures and information about all its burial places. The cemetery portal also includes information about the cemetery and its history, culture etc. In that sense the cemetery portal is very useful for example for researchers who deal with local history.
We hope that Estonian Cemetery Portal carries a pricless cultural value for all citizens!
