Statewide Cultural Resources GIS Standards

The State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) has developed and Cultural Resources GIS Program which seeks to aggregate locational information from known cultural resources and survey areas. As part of this effort, the Historic Preservation GIS Program has created standards to guide the creation of cultural resources GIS, along with a template Geodatabase which conforms to the statewide standards and may be used in the development of GIS data.

Links to the documents can be found below and will, at some point, also be found on the SHPD website. For any questions about the standards, please contact the SHPD Historic Preservation GIS Specialist, Nick Belluzzo at nicholas.r.belluzzo@hawaii.gov.

The Standards and Guidance for the Creation of Cultural Resources Geospatial Data (v.1.1.1), provide direction on the data standards as well as explain the fields and terminology for the attributes in the GIS. To download the Guidance, click the button below.
