At that time one of the most poorly represented items on the maps was cemeteries.
One of the goals of MEGIS was to change that and to place as many cemeteries as possible on the Maine maps. The Maine maps are then used to update USGS and national maps. Through the efforts of volunteers, MOCA had gathered and was able to share the locations of almost 7,000 cemeteries.
The site's search tool facilitates searching for cemeteries by town, cemetery name, MOCA code, and GNIS ID. Search results include links to cemetery transcriptions in PDF format where available.
