Work Completed at RI Veterans Memorial Cemetery
Our team recently completed work at the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery where we provided project management, surveying and GPS support. Bryant survey crews performed boundary and topographic surveys through aerial mapping and supplemental on-the-ground surveys to depict existing conditions of the 280-acre cemetery. Bryant also provided the design of stormwater management facilities to support the masterplan.
The Bryant team included subconsultants for wetland assessment site surveys, archaeology assessment site surveys, geophysical services, and landscape architects. Our work included the location and identification of approximately 30,000 existing grave sites, columbarium wall niche, perimeter memorials sites throughout the cemetery, memorial benches, and tree dedication stones which were performed utilizing a geospatial handheld Global Navigation Satellite System. A GIS spatial database was generated that links to the cemetery’s existing database system as a foundation of the cemetery data that could be expanded to be an interactive web map or mobile application with user-friendly tools that cemetery staff and visitors can access and use to locate individuals and obtain burial records.
