Marion Cemetery GIS Mapping

City of Marion, Illinois

Developed user-friendly, modernized cemetery record set available to the public, which also removes worry for the City of double burials or losing information due to vandalism or damaged headstones.


Horner & Shifrin was retained by the City of Marion to provide a web-based GIS solution for the collection of over 35,000 burial sites throughout the City of Marion and have real-time access to the cemetery map which would be easy to deploy, cost effective, and accessible to the public. The web-based GIS development and data collection extend GIS beyond the desktop for City staff. Asset location and inspection provided field verification of structure asset data. Web-based GIS module streamlined the collection and invoice management of municipal code violations and occupancy inspections.
