We are experienced in working with all sorts of plans and can assess the condition of your map prior to quoting and will discuss any challenges with you.
Yes, we can use aerial imagery as well as your knowledge to create the first draft. Without existing maps we recommend you allow plenty of time to visit your cemetery site and check the drafts as our maps will rely on the information you provide.
Pear Technology are not surveyors or architect so we cannot plan or design cemeteries.
You do not need to have any of your burial records digitised prior to investing in our cemetery mapping package.
Burial records can be kept in an Excel spreadsheet, our own Burial Database or existing Burial Administration Systems such as Epitaph (Edge IT Systems), RBS Rialtas Cemeteries Management. A link to the BACAS software, Clear Skies is coming soon.
We do not transcribe burial records.
It isn’t unusual for small changes to be necessary and we can make these for you as part of our technical support service. If you have also purchased PT-Mapper Pro you will also have all the tools to edit the map yourself should you wish to.
We prepare your map so it is ready for future use. We will encourage you to think about about any unused sections of your cemetery so we can plot this for you, even if you have no maps for this area.
Yes! Pear’s Cemetery Searcher website allows your cemetery to be published as a fully interactive map. Burial records can be searched by the public wherever there is a good internet connection.
Only burial information allowed in the public domain is published making it compliant with GDPR and advice from the ICCM.
Maps may also be published online as simple PDFs providing the correct Ordnance Survey licencing information is displayed.
The Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) entitles certain public sector organisations to free Ordnance Survey map data which our cemetery maps are based on.
There are no catches, and it is free to sign up to through a simple online form which can be found on the OS website – Public Sector Mapping Agreement
If you are not eligible, don’t worry, Pear are an Ordnance Survey Partner and work with many private sector organisations who purchase OS map data through us. We will be able to include a quote for the background Ordnance Survey data along with the cemetery map quote.
If you already have a digital map or cemetery survey we may be able to work with this.
