Who developed this GSSA Google Earth Cemetery Initiative?
The Moss family being presented with the GSSA Extra Mile Award for development of the GSSA Google Earth Cemetery Initiative. Cemeterylocation information in GPS form was collected from themany volunteers who have over the years provided information to the Cemetery Recording Project and the Photo Project; this information is collated in the master Cemetery Index by Peter and Beverley Moss. Their sons Stewart and Adrian, who spent many happy hours of their childhood sitting in hot cars while Peter & Beverley recorded yet another cemetery of interest, provided the initiative and technical expertise for the Initiative:
- Stewart conceived the initial idea and undertook the software development so that Google Earth could read and display the Cemetery Index data.
- Adrian designed and built the new Google Earth Cemetery Initiative web page.
We thank them most sincerely for their time and effort, without which this initiative would never have got off the ground.
