03/01/2019 07:00 - East Rutherford, NJ - (PR Distribution™)

Behar Mapping, the leading provider of GIS (Geographic Information System) mapping services in the death care industry, announced today the launch of their 3D GIS mapping solution for cemeteries and mausoleums. 

Behar Mapping is revolutionizing the cemetery mapping sector by applying Esri’s cutting edge technology that will allow for web-based visual 3D representation of all graves, plots, niches, crypts and mausoleums in real world location and connected to a GIS database. The technology re-creates a visual representation of the property and allows for details such as location and depth of graves. The functionality and the data that can be featured on the 3D renderings are completely customizable based on the needs of the cemetery, ensuring that each cemetery is given a bespoke product.

Behar Mapping has developed its 3D mapping solution based on Esri’s technology. Mr. Ronen Rybowski, the Founder and owner of Behar Mapping and a GIS Professional (GISP), stresses that “we [Behar Mapping] are providing the industry with the right tools to better serve the public. We also want to provide innovative resources that allow our customers to effectively manage their cemeteries while maintaining complete control over their data”. 

A project was recently completed at the Gethsemani Catholic Cemetery in Portland, Oregon. Mr. Tim Corbett, the Director of Cemeteries at Archdiocese of Portland, exclaimed, “to my knowledge, we are the first cemetery in the US to ever be mapped in 3D GIS technology. Behar has provided us with 3D maps, representing all plots with their accurate location and depth, as well as the mausoleums crypts, niches, and cremation garden. This new visualization has made managing these assets so much easier!".
