Using Technology for Cemetery Preservation
Cemeteries provide a lasting reminder of earlier generations, but are often in a state of neglect and disrepair. However, there are several innovative technologies available to help locate, map, protect and preserve these sacred spaces.
This resource webpage and training video are the result of a Cemetery Preservation Technology Workshop hosted by the Montana History Foundation in June 2018.
