What is HICRIS?

Hawaii Cultural Resource Information System (HICRIS)

  • HICRIS is an advanced Geographic Information System and data management system that integrates SHPD’s  vast historic and cultural resource database as well as digitized paper records of Hawaiʻi’s recorded cultural resources.  It provides a single place to access those cultural records and related geographic data.
  • HICRIS will serve as an interactive portal for agencies, municipalities, planners, researchers, and others who use historic preservation data and programs, such as the Hawaii`s chapter 6E and the federal section 106 review processes,  architectual and archaeological survey programs, the State and Federal Income Tax Credits for rehabilitation of historic properties, as well the State and National Registers of Historic Places Programs.
