C is a general-purpose, imperative computer programming language, supporting structured programming, lexical variable scope and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations. By design, C provides constructs that map efficiently to typical machine instructions, so it has found lasting use in applications that had formerly been coded in assembly language, including operating systems as well as various application software for computers ranging from supercomputers to embedded systems. It is distinct from C++ (which has its roots in C) and C#, and many later languages have borrowed directly or indirectly from C.

Useful guide in recovery from Ransomware attack.
Nice work on the "C" part of the document: Data Integrity: Recovering from Ransomware and Other Destructive Events, Volume C.

This NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide demonstrates how organizations can develop and implement appropriate actions following a detected cybersecurity event. The solutions outlined in this guide encourage monitoring and detecting data corruption in commodity components—as well as custom applications and data composed of open-source and commercially available components.

If you look at some of my last questions, you'll see that I rewrote all of my local cemetery's "internment books".  These are books that list things like: when/why people died. where they are buried, etc.  My sister got the job of bookkeeper for the cemetery.  I have free time and they don't know squat about making the information digital.  I spent about 15 months rewriting their books.  She also has maps of the cemetery which is broken into 5 divisions called sections.  Each section is divided into "lots".  Each lot is a set of 12 graves.  The internment books give the name of each person buried in the graves.  I have the digital information as an openoffice calc spreadsheet.  Since I am trying to learn perl, and I don't want to make the maps by hand, I want to get perl to do the work and somehow make the maps.  I used inkscape to draw some of the cemetery but I couldn't figure out how to get the information from the spreadsheet into inkscape.  This made me think that inkscape might be a mistake.  A previous expert mentioned learning javascript.  This is an option but I was seeing if perl can draw before moving to js.  I also looked at putting the sheet into mysql.  What I know is the digital form of the internment books is a useful form and I'm trying into     take advantage of it.  I really have no involvement but I thnk my sister is really overlooking a useful tool.

Start with how you'd like to present the data to users, including how they will query data.

I'd likely present this data as a normal HTML 4x3 or 3x4 table as what a user will see.

In your database, you'll have one table where each row contains section + lot + grave, so section=3 + lot=9 + grave=5 represents each cell in your matrix.

Then either store the actual grave information in another table or maybe just store this data as a custom HTML file, as each grave representation might be very different + representing ad-hoc in a database table can be tricky.

And yes, steer clear of Inkspace, use HTML tables to represent your data + you're coding will be much easier.

Tip #1: Since you're just starting your coding adventure, be sure you generate valid HTML. If you miss this step + generate broken HTML syntax, then you're debugging will be difficult, especially when someone contacts you + says the page their viewing is blank white or the layout is scrambled.

Use https://validator.w3.org/nu/ to incrementally validate your code.

Each time you make a code change, validate your HTML. Your target is 0 HTML errors.

Tip #2: Use WordPress. Once you start working with all this data, there will come a day when you'd like to do something like let people login + add information to their relatives gravesite. If you start with WordPress, you're life will likely be easier in the long run.
