My job includes reviewing transportation projects for impacts to historic and cultural resources. Here in Connecticut our data is quite scattered, and I find it quite time consuming to do any kind of “complete” analysis. We have our highways, soils, topo. maps, and archaeological site locations in GIS. We have our archaeological site information in Access. To find properties or districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places I use the online database on the National Park Service website. To look at historic maps I use those that I have downloaded from the University of Connecticut or CT State Library websites and imported into GIS. I use the Bing birds-eye and Google street-view maps available online to “walk around” a project area if I don’t have a chance to get out and do some actual field review. Is there anyone out there who has streamlined this process? Or perhaps has other ideas about how to do this kind of initial review for Section 106/NEPA/Section 4(f)/etc? My job is also, in addition to making a recommendation to the SHPO, providing a series of maps that gives a view of the project area through time while also portraying its potential historic and/or archaeological sensitivity. I’m curious to know how other people may do this.
