The Village of Deerfield Community Development Department has begun a
process to accurately survey and review all records related to the
Deerfield Cemetery. The process involves obtaining records related to
the property, plots, and all other associated information. As part of
the process, the Village of Deerfield GIS Department was asked to
convert the legal plat of the property and develop a base map of the
cemetery. The base map will be used as a foundation to continue the
development of placing cemetery records into a real world location.
This program will continue to grow into the future with the final
goal of creating an accurate account of all records associated with the
cemetery along with the ability of staff to locate the information in
mapping environment. The image included in this article is an example of
the initial plat conversion based on supplied records.
