A critical aspect in conserving the ICH is to conduct proper documentation of ICH. Currently, data and information on intangible cultural heritage are scattered between different agencies and organizations. The extensive information on ICH through the agencies and government websites are in the form of HTML files which are unstructured and very time-consuming for end-users wishing to extract information about specific types of ICH in Malaysia. It is important to note that ICH have data that have both spatial and non-spatial attributes. There is no centrally maintained website that provides integrated information of ICH such as name of practitioners, types of ICH, location, methods, equipment and others.
