In the wake of Superstorm Sandy in 2012, the need for rapid architectural survey assessment and multi-agency coordination became vital to streamlining recovery efforts through the historic preservation review process. After a multi-year cooperative survey with FEMA, which was enhanced with GPS and geo-referenced digital photography, the NJ Historic Preservation Office (NJHPO) began looking for new survey techniques to build upon the FEMA experience. Having played with GoPro cameras for capturing architectural still images, staff wanted to evaluate how wide angle video could be leveraged for rapid architectural survey. Simultaneously, we determined that Cumberland County, among the most rural of New Jersey’s 21 counties, was not well represented in the statewide architectural inventory. Due to the likely impacts of future sea level rise and storm events, HPO focused on the coastal region of the county along the Delaware Bay, which was targeted to an area within ½ mile of the Sandy storm surge, using a target property list based on statewide tax data.
