Gravestone Conferences

Keith presented his Submerged Cemetery at Mullins Cove presentation at the 2017 Association for Gravestone Studies annual conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

At the 2016 Association for Gravestone Studies annual conference, Keith lead a full day workshop on GPS/Cemetery Mapping. This workshop included a 3 hour class lecture with hands-on map building activities. The classroom section of the workshop began with a basic discussion of 2-dimensional topographical maps. Using those 2-dimensional maps, Keith integrated a GPS data stream which allowed class participants to develop 3-dimensional geospatially accurate cemetery maps.

Classroom participants also discussed the latest in crowd-sourced apps which make cemetery hunting fun and effective.

Drone Cemetery MappingThe classroom workshop was followed by a field study in cemetery mapping.
Keith used Drone technology to develop a 3-D Cemetery Map of a local cemetery.
Conference attendees enjoyed hands-on operation of a GPS enabled Drone in our mapping field study.
