Collection of sign data in the field

Blog_Collectionofsigndatainthefield.png The Village of Lincolnshire Streets Department in compliance with new
Federal Sign Regulations is to begin the process of inventorying all
signs within the village. The process will involve using staff in the
field to review and inventory all signs within the corporate limits. To
assist the staff, the GIS Department was asked to take an existing sign
inventory database and make it available for field crews to view,
update, and use. The GIS Department prepared a device which had all the
mapping and sign data displayed to assist crews while conducting the
inventory process. Most signs will only need to be reviewed and updated,
but field crews will have the ability to update, add, remove, and
modify any asset while in the field. When the inventory is completed the
returned data will be brought back into a Sign Inventory Database which
will continue to be used when new signs are added or removed.

The final goal of this program is to ensure the Village of
Lincolnshire is meeting all Federal Sign Regulations and all signs have
been properly inventoried. The image in this article is an example of
the mapping and data available to field crews while conducting field
data collection.
