The CRSurveyor Collector App cultural resource survey tool is designed to help communities survey cultural resources digitally. This solution allows a survey team from a Community or Organization to take phones or tablets in the field and accurately capture location and specific details about historic sites. The data is saved into a data structure that matches the National Park Service cultural resource standards and catalogs many National Register required fields. This data can be collected offline and ‘synced’ when the surveyor obtains connectivity.

The solution uses the Esri ArcGIS platform and was designed using Collector for ArcGIS. Field data is collected using the ESRI Collector Application. The data and maps are stored in the Esri cloud-based ArcGIS Online platform. The Community must have licenses for ArcGIS Online to utilize the solution.
