How accurate is the information and how frequently is it updated?

Crystal_Clear_app_calcEvery effort is made to ensure that the information is as accurate as possible but inaccuracies do arise, mainly due to the following:

• Locations derived from the 1:50000 maps have the double disadvantage of being scaled and read off the paper map, and also the coordinates are Cape System and not the worldwide WGS84 used by Google Earth and GPS receivers. We are correcting these coordinates as time permits.
• Use of incorrect GPS datum by recorders.
• The chance of inaccuracies during the coordinate recording and data processing stages.
• Some areas of the Google Earth maps are “fuzzy”, so accurate cemetery locations cannot be obtained and approximations are used.

As far as possible, we note the accuracy level of the coordinates and audit the locations shown for correctness.

The data is updated at the end of each month so keep an eye out for new revisions.
