I am about to begin creating a GIS database for my historic districts and properties. I was hoping to get some feedback from others who have this data in a GIS format. What type of data did you collect initially and what type of data do you update on a regular basis? Did you create point features, do you use the parcels, or do you use the building footprints to represent each structure? What type of analysis do you perform, if any?
I would really appreciate any thoughts or experiences from anyone who has experience using GIS in Historic Preservation.
Thanks in advance for your comments
