Mapping and Planning

Mapping and planning secure a productive project. Mapping is an important step, not only to best serve your communities needs, but to also preserve your community's history. Working with your local cultural preservation office will assure the safety of cultural artifacts and prevent significant losses. Planning ahead allows for an effective and efficient project.
