Bow High student maps graves at New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery

A senior student at Bow High School has mapped graves at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, making it much easier for people to find the graves of their near & dear ones.

When Elin Warwick found out that people were having a difficult time in locating their loved ones’ graves, she used a geographic information program from Esri, marked the location of each and every grave and uploaded it to a computer installed in the N.H. State Veterans Cemetery’s welcome center.

Esri is a geographic information system firm whose app is used by Bow High School to teach geography to students. Warwick’s father also works at Esri.

When contacted, Warwick said, “With the technology we have, it shouldn’t be a worry of military families that they can’t find the grave of their loved ones. With the technology we have, I knew it would be a simple solution to a complex problem – it would have been ridiculous to not do it.”

The map allows visitors to find the exact location of the grave they want to visit and how to get to it. It also shows an image of the grave as well as information about the person who was buried there.

The N.H. State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, which claims to be a source of pride to veterans’ families as well as residents of the state, has more than 9,000 graves.
