Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
What type of camera do volunteers need?
Volunteers who wish to photograph complete cemeteries need a digital camera.
Ideally the camera should have a zoom capability and well and being able to store images at high quality.
The GPR holds grave monument photographs in three different sizes:
- thumbnail: used to display small versions of the photo on grave information pages.
- high quality: given to website visitors who request the photo(s) for a specific grave.
- ultra high quality: the actual images taken by volunteers.
In most cases the high quality images are good enough for most people's needs. However, on occasions such as when there is a huge amount of small text or the monument is almost illegible, the ultra high quality images can help.
The average sizes of these different images are:
- thumbnail: 5kb - 6kb
- high quality: 300kb - 500kb
- ultra high quality: 500kb - 12gb
