Finding Loved Ones – There’s An App For That
One of the nation's most popular national cemeteries will be getting it's own app for smartphones late this fall. Arlington National Cemetery is one of the oldest and largest in the United States which can make navigating very difficult.
There seems to be an app for just about everything. Heck, you can unlock or start your car, fly a remote control helicopter and monitor your home all from your smartphone. When I heard that a cemetery was working on their own app, it was eerie yet sensible.
With over 600 acres of grave sites, niches and tombs the Arlington National Cemetery can be difficult to maneuver. There is a new app set to come out late this fall with better accuracy than the GPS technology of the private sector. Accuracy within three inches is what is being claimed. The app will do much more than just help navigate graves. It will also assist with funeral schedules, processions and photos. It sounds like a good idea to me. The only thing halting the launch of the app is the need for a better 3G or 4G network around the cemetery which is already being worked on. It's rumored that depending on the success of the app at Arlington National Cemetery will be the deciding factor on creating an app for the over 100 other national cemeteries. Just remember, there's always an app for that.
