Business kiosk map

​The City of Highland Park is a vibrant dow9ntown full of businesses
that attract many visitors. Because the downtown contains many
buildings, it is often difficult to locate a specific business. The
Highland Park Chamber of Commence decided to use business directory to
aid people with locating specific businesses. There are four directories
located throughout the downtown area. They are similar to Shopping Mall
Store Directories in that they list a location of a business and
provide a map for referencing that location.

The directories consist of two parts. A map displaying important
features in the downtown and a business directory listing around the
map. A sample of the map is visible on the right. The map consists of
orientation information such as address ranges and street names. It also
symbolizes the buildings containing listed business and public parking
areas. The design allows people to quickly reference business listed in
the directory listing.

The second portion of the directory is the business listing; a sample
of the business directory is displayed on the left. It lists the
business name, map grid location and address. The grid location refers
to the letters and numbers on the map. This grid makes it easy to locate
a general area on the map. The addresses provide a more precise
location within the grid. They also provide a building number to locate
the business from outside the building. Businesses are also categorized
by similar characteristics to further aid people with finding a specific
business

GIS was crucial for developing this product. An automated process
assigned the grid locations to each business. The map consists of
existing data that colored and labeled by existing attribute,
eliminating the need to create separate graphics for these features. The
map and directory are produced in house and do not require the cost of a
graphic designer to create this product. Furthermore, producing the
product in house allows easy and quick updates to the directories. GIS
provides the tools to create an important information product of great
value to the residents of the City of Highland Park.
