Customization of Arches for City of Los Angeles

In parallel to the development of Arches for the international heritage community, the GCI has customized the system to create HistoricPlacesLA, the Los Angeles Historic Resource Inventory.

Launched in February 2015, HistoricPlacesLA is the first online information and management system specifically created to help inventory, map, describe, and protect Los Angeles' significant cultural resources.

For a number of years the GCI has been providing technical advice to a citywide survey of historic resources in Los Angeles that is currently underway, called SurveyLA. (More about SurveyLA in this video clip from PBS Newshour.)

HistoricPlacesLA, includes information gathered to date through SurveyLA, as well as information on thousands of Los Angeles' designated historic resources. Over time, it will include information on all designated resources as well as all resources identified through SurveyLA.
