Muskegon County Genealogical Society is Celebrating 45 years!!

 

MCGS Monthly Program - Thursday, May 11, 2017

"M.C.G.S. Cemetery Project"

Speakers, Bill Hansen & Tom VanBruggen

 

From printed maps to Geographical Information System (GIS) and Globe Positioning System (GPS), this program covers a brief history of where we started how far we have come during the last 3 years in Muskegon County cemetery mapping.


The main emphasis of the program will be giving participants the first look at what maps have been completed and just how best to use this new mapping tool. Be prepared to share this information with others, by either inviting them to the meeting, or by taking notes so you can share with those not in attendance.


Just as important as this project is to the society, it is even more important that as many people as possible experience this great resource.
As the release to the public of the first set of maps, we also need to be aware of what we all can do to add to this project going forward to make it even better. The maps will be made public the day after the May meeting.

GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems. GIS is a mapping technology that allows the user to create and interact with a variety of maps and data sources. GIS integrates databases with georeferenced spatial data (maps tied to specific known locations)
