Jet Lowe[edit]

I've created a biography stub for notable HABS/HAER photographer Jet Lowe. Since Wikipedia and Commons contain many photographs by him, it would be worthwhile to improve the article. (Everyone is including photographer credit on HABS/HAER images they upload, right?) 121a0012 07:14, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Gallery[edit]

I enlarged the squinty little thumbnails, but I don't know how to put them in a grid -- if that's even necessary?? Someone who knows HTML may want to fiddle with this. Cheers, Pete Tillman (talk) 19:48, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved. As Heritage Documentation Programs is a proper noun, with all words capitalized, it is not necessary to further disambiguate it by adding "U.S." or "National Park Service". Aervanath (talk) 13:13, 23 March 2012 (UTC)



Historic American Buildings SurveyHeritage Documentation ProgramsRelisted. Vegaswikian (talk) 05:18, 15 March 2012 (UTC) This article covers three different documentation programs (HABS, HAER, and HALS), yet the article is inaccurately named for only one of the programs, the Historic American Buildings Survey, with redirects from the other two. The proposed move to Heritage Documentation Programs would more accurately reflect the content of the article because HDP oversees all three programs (HABS, HAER, HALS, as well as CRGIS, Cultural Resources Geographic Information Systems, not currently mentioned in the article). The alternative, splitting the article into separate articles for each program, would take a Start-class article and turn it into three stubs, which seems less than ideal. Martindelaware (talk) 02:24, 8 March 2012 (UTC) Oppose – unless the article is to be totally rewritten to cover all heritage documentation programmes worldwide? If the scope is to remain confined to one country, it would probably be good to specify that country both in the article title and within the article itself. A possible title might be something like United States heritage documentation programs or Heritage documentation programs in the USA. Could that work?

Heritage Documentation Programs is actually the proper name of the U.S. National Park Service division that administers HABS, HAER, and HALS. This is why I capitalized all three words; see Official website . I'm proposing to rename the page after this division. Perhaps U.S. National Park Service Heritage Documentation Programs?
