Ray showed his custom application that uses GIS, SQL server tables, and drones to show cemetery records. Each grave plot has a history attached to it showing ownership, sales, available, and occupied graves.

Greg Bunce – AGRC

Greg introduced the latest State Geographic Information Database (SGID). SGID is a one-stop shop for finding Utah datasets and it was recently redesigned to make the user experience a better one. HERE is more information about SGID and some of the new features.
