Cemeteries and Flooding: A mapping project
Please scroll down to the bottom of this page, to see the beginnings of a map I'm creating to mark cemeteries hit by flooding, either by natural disaster (green marker) or manmade problems, such as sprawl or runoff (red marker). As I discover more cemeteries, they will be marked; new categories may be created.
"Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have." -- Benjamin Franklin
Where do we go when we die? This blog explores the places where cemeteries and land use intersect, and examines what urban planners and thinkers, communities and others are doing (and not doing) about cemeteries.
You can find a companion site at Facebook, and I'm tweeting about these subjects at Twitter, at @TaphoFiles.
