(April 16, 2009/Harrisburg, Pa.) GeoDecisions, an information technology company specializing in geospatial solutions, recently developed a Web-based mapping application for the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs (DHCA).
The solution, developed in collaboration with the Delaware Government Information Center (GIC), efficiently manages the protection of historic properties and assists in preservation planning.
The Cultural and Historical Resource Information System (CHRIS) gives users the ability to quickly and easily access historic resource data and valuable historical information to preserve, maintain, and foster awareness of Delaware’s historical resources. It also helps to streamline workflows, enhance data access, provide the public with access to Delaware’s national register information, and helps to establish partnerships with other state and federal agencies that work with historical resources. Additionally, CHRIS, available at http://chris.delaware.gov, combines Delaware’s inventory of national register listings, cultural resource inventory, documentation, and images for all national register locations.
Through the Public Outreach Module in CHRIS, members of the public can access national register and cultural inventory information. The module encourages public updates and exchanges with interactive and informative Web tools, such as user submission forms, RSS feeds, photo tours, and customized mapping.
