Student mapping grave locations at State Veterans Cemetery
Posted January 12
BOW, N.H. — A high schooler in Bow hopes a computer program will help military families find their loved ones at the state Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen (BAHS'-kwihn).
The Concord Monitor reports (http://bit.ly/2jaQQ5D ) Elin Warwick is marking each grave's location and uploading them to a computer installed in the cemetery's welcome center. Warwick says a few hundred remain of the cemetery's roughly 9,000 graves.
Visitors will be able to see each grave's exact location on a map and how to get to them. Pictures of the graves and information about the people buried there will also be available.
Warwick's father works for a geographic information system company. Bow High School uses the company's app to teach geography.
Warwick hopes a mobile app will someday take visitors directly to specific graves.
