Cultural Resource Data Management and Mapping Using GIS
Authors: Keir Keightley, Bryan Kelly
A strategy to manage and map cultural resources for the purpose of reporting is offered. A database schema was created to accommodate the evolving requirements of a large cultural resources survey using attributes to facilitate the creation of maps appropriate for reporting at different stages of the project lifecycle. Likewise, a collection of cartographic representations is offered to provide consistent map appearance and to handle special case symbology situations encountered at unique sites.
