Pinnacle Memorial Gardens GIS Mapping
Crafton Tull provided the civil, surveying, and geographical information systems (GIS) mapping services to the Pinnacle Memorial Gardens to design, develop, and implement a digital records management system. Parking lot design, sidewalks, street improvements, permitting, and layout adjustments were needed to bring a new cemetery to the region.
After a long series of extensive demonstrations, NewCom Technology, Inc. and their product Cemetery Management System (CMS) was selected based upon matching criteria from the client needs and our ability to extend and support additional features. The scope for NewCom’s involvement was to assist in integration of their software from our provided data, assist in the setup of documentation automation (deeds, burial permits, etc.), setup of the software, and training after the system was in place.
Crafton Tull has helped to bring survey grade GIS datasets to many local municipalities in the region. This experience has given us a different mode of selecting solutions to meet the client’s needs. Our primary solution extended our civil and surveying work by providing a management tool that integrated with long term management of data in a unified system that was extensible by our staff. The client wanted us to address the concerns of vendor longevity, data storage methods, features needed, and the understanding of their end product.
