Bristol Survey

  1. Research existing state survey forms.
  2. Develop a 'state or local' survey form.
  3. Test drive the form (completing 'fields' as possible, for your assigned structures in Bristol) in the field.
  4. Combine written, graphic and photographic documentation in to your form.

Resources

Research: Contribute to resources, annotated on state survey criterial, lexicons, forms and online databases.

Assess several state survey forms used as part of the SHPO 'survey and planning' work as per NHPA (PDF file, as amended through 2006), which indicates,

[for SHPOs] "...in cooperation with Federal and State agencies, local governments, and private organizations and individuals, direct and conduct a comprehensive statewide survey of historic properties and maintain inventories of such properties;" and

[for CLGs] "...maintains a system for the survey and inventory of historic properties...".

Survey field/values: Contribute to the survey terms, fields/values, lexicon and typology on survey data.

Survey form: Develop your own survey form (in Word®, Filemaker, or equal). You can work with other students. Your form will include 'fields' that you will not be able to fill out but that would be needed for a state-level survey. Focus on the 'fields' needed over the graphic layout of the form.

Written: Develop a brief, one paragraph, written architectural description of the exterior of several buildings along a Bristol street, which you have been assigned (see below).

Photographs: Include two photographs, described in Assignment 6 Photographic: Survey. MAke sur eyour photographs are small, about 100 kb, each.

Sketch: Include linear, freehand drawing of the 'footprint' of the building(s) and the property 'plot'.

Survey: Survey properties assigned. Complete survey forms as much as possible.

Locate: Using Google Earth or equal, determine latitude/longtitude coordinates.

Product: Compile survey, including photgraphs, drawing, and written component in Word document (or InDesign). Export (convert) into a PDF files, one per building. Identify files with name in lower case as <ri_bristol_street_##_your-last-name.pdf>, where '##' is building number. For eample <ri_bristol_hope_500_marshall.pdf>. Include latitude and longtitude.

Panoramio: Upload and locate photographs of structures, identify by steeet address.
