PlotBox is a company based in Northern Ireland that provides cloud-based software for cemeteries and crematoria to better manage their operations. The software solution is designed for use by all segments of the industry, from small rural graveyards to large scale operational sites. In particular, it uses drones to map the grounds and help cemeteries make sure they’re not burying anyone in the wrong plot, something that apparently happens and causes expensive lawsuits. You can learn more at http://www.plotboxit.com.
PlotBox also is building a new genealogy portal where deceased records are displayed for family history research at DiscoverEverAfter.com. The site is not yet available but is promised to appear “real soon now.”
The PlotBox software and drone-created mapping is obviously designed for use by cemetery owners. However, I can envision similar uses by genealogists, historical societies, governmental agencies, and more.
