Intro to PA-SHARE, Pennsylvania's State Historic and Archaeological Resource Exchange


As part of our Preservation Month activities, Preservation Pennsylvania invited Shelby Splain, Education and Outreach Coordinator with the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO) to give us a guided tour of the new PA-SHARE (Pennsylvania’s State Historic and Archaeological Resource Exchange) system, the new online data management and cultural resources GIS tool. It replaces the CRGIS platform.

Featuring over one million newly digitized files and combining several disparate systems into one searchable database, PA-SHARE streamlines and provides critical access to resources, projects, historical markers, surveys and reports.

Whether you’re a grassroots advocate or a CRM professional, you’ll learn to use PA-SHARE as a map-based inventory of historic and archaeological sites and surveys. It’s a primary tool for the public, agencies, and partners to conduct research, make informed decisions, participate in processes, and collect historic and archaeological resource information.
