Cemetery mapping services – ‘GRAVE HUNTER’
GRAVE HUNTER combines headstone photographs and interment details (e.g. name, date of birth, etc.) with the creation of an electronic map of a cemetery.
The advantages of having an electronic cemetery map and an electronic interment register are apparent:
- Integration of both map and registers allows users to find the location of a specific grave within a cemetery.
- Electronic maps are easy to update and store.
- Maps and interment registers can be made publicly accessible (e.g. for genealogists or family historians) via the Internet.
- Hunter Geophysics does not restrict the mapping system, meaning that new graves can be mapped simply using only a measuring tape and a compass.
- Hunter Geophysics provides all the training and software required. All you need is a Windows-based computer. Recent Apple Macintosh computers are also supported if they are capable of virtualization (you’ll need a copy of VMWare and Microsoft Windows).
Demonstration version of GRAVE HUNTER
A demonstration version of GRAVE HUNTER is available.
First, you will need to download and install a demonstration copy of Global Mapper (a mapping program created by Global Mapper LLC). The demonstration version of Global Mapper does not allow the user to alter any maps; a full version of the software, which allows the user to edit and update maps, is provided when Hunter Geophysics creates a site map.
Photographs and interment details contained within this demonstration are of actual graves in the Creswick Cemetery, Victoria.
