Cypress Lawn Cemetery Association
Cypress Lawn Cemetery Association has a long rich history dating back when California first began. However, it also has an important recent history of improvements, additions, and concern for all Californians. Cypress Lawn was founded in 1892 and has grown into more than 250 acres consisting of three (3) locations — the East Side, West Side and Hillside Campuses.
As a premium funeral and cremation provider in the San Francisco Bay Area, the name Cypress Lawn is synonymous with quality. President & CEO, Bob Gordon and his team are committed to preserving all areas of this magnificent location including its historical grounds, arboretum, century-old chapels and gardens. The mission of Cypress Lawn is to pay warm tribute to loved ones and their accomplishments, through personalized service memorializing the lives of others.
“UVARA’s visualization, analytics, and archival technology address our challenges of managing aging infrastructure and the costly, unforeseen problems that arose when we had no visual understanding of where our assets were located”.

High-Resolution Aerial Imagery
Aerial imagery is extremely useful for many reasons, specifically in support of planning, design, construction, maintenance & operations, emergency response planning and more. We provide <5cm/pixel (<2in/pixel) resolution imagery that allows users to see important details not easily identified with traditional satellite imagery.
ASCE 38-02 Field Verification
For Cypress Lawn Cemetery Association, utilities that are depicted are based on original plans they provided, and on ASCE Standard 38-02 grade field verification. During field observations some utilities were discovered in locations that differed from the source documents. In each case, the utilities were drawn to best fit the field observations based on the intent of the original source documents and maintain their link to the source documents.
