“Heritage Documentation Programs administers HABS (Historic American Buildings Survey), the Federal Government’s oldest preservation program, and companion programs HAER (Historic American Engineering Record), HALS (Historic American Landscapes Survey), and CRGIS (Cultural Resources Geographic Information Systems).
Documentation produced through the programs constitutes the nation’s largest archive of historic architectural, engineering, and landscape documentation.” National Parks Service
The photo requirements are very specific when it comes to submitting your preservation proposal. We offer film processing, fiber printing and scanning services that meet these requirements; LVT (digital to archival film output).
Should you also need a photographer for documentation, we offer that service as well or can suggest one in your area!
