Arlington National Cemetery used geospatial technology to create an interactive map of the some 400,000 graves contained within its borders, allowing people to search by name to locate graves. The cemetery's Web and mobile applications give the location of a grave, display a photo of the headstone and give the occupant's dates of birth and death -- information that officials say will make it easier for families and other visitors to honor veterans.
