Historic Cemetery Documentation Regional Workshop – Southern Maryland
December 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Working with the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration, Preservation Maryland has embarked on an ambitious project to document 100 cemeteries and burial sites across the state.
Cemetery Documentation Specialist, Caroline Herritt, will share her notes from the field and discuss what trends she has discovered after visiting over 100 Maryland cemeteries. She will also review the mobile app specially developed by SHA to record data points. These data points will be added to a data layer in their statewide GIS database and mapping tool.Attendees will also hear from Alexander Keim from SHA about what inspired the project, next steps for this innovative program, and how you can get involved in documenting cemeteries with the new app.
Hosted in partnership with State Highway Administration, Calvert County Department of Planning and Development, Southern Maryland Heritage Area Consortium, and Charles County Department of Planning.
