The idea behind this documentation is to help provide an easier way to manage burial records, specifically with which graves are unused, where each grave is located, and other
information about the person if the plot is used. The hope was to help to move away from paper
data and make the storage of this information easier.
This document should help walk through getting started with a free, open-source GIS
program called QGIS, specifically to manage the dataset we have created.
If any in depth questions arise visit here for the official QGIS training documentation.
