Historic preservation has long been a part of Georgia and United States history, and with preservation planning. Historic resource survey was one of the first nationally standardized effective preservation tools. Since its inception as a New Deal era program, the Historic American Building Survey has changed the ways in which historic resources are viewed. This thesis will examine Georgia’s historic resource survey program within the context of these and other historic resource survey standards. It will then look at two other state programs before examining specific elements within the survey process. This thesis will attempt to make recommendations on the basis of improving the effectiveness and efficiency of Georgia’s historic resource survey program through data quality and data management.
