This presentation will focus on the what, why and how of historic resource surveys. Surveys are one of the basic building blocks of preservation planning, providing government agencies, developers, building owners and scholars with basic information for understanding the built environment, and for planning future interventions. The presentation will be illustrated with examples from several surveys, including urban surveys focusing mostly on buildings, and surveys focusing on less commonplace resource types.
