Digitization Project Update!

In Fall 2017, PA SHPO contracted with JMT to help us complete an ambitious digitization project to turn all of the CD and paper files in the PA SHPO file room into digital documents for greater accessibility and as part of the move to the PA SHARE system. All the files scanned are available on CRGIS; you can get to CRGIS through this link:

Working with PA SHPO staff, JMT contractors spent over two years on this project, which involved a gap analysis, document prep and scanning, and filing for all 67 of Pennsylvania’s counties. This included over 1 million pages of reports and HRSF (Historic Resource Survey Form), and PASS (Pennsylvania Archaeological Site Survey) files.

Thanks, JMT, for assisting PA SHPO in accomplishing this monumental task!
