Des Plaines River Bike Trail Tour

Blog_DesPlainesRiverBikeTrailTour.jpg

The City of Des Plaines hosts numerous special events throughout the
year. These events often require the involvement and coordination of
numerous city departments, including Public Works, Engineering, and the
Public Relations office. To help improve these coordination efforts, the
GIS (Geographic Information Systems) department developed a map product
to allow all those involved to communicate event information more
efficiently.

The map developed for this bike tour highlights the tour route and
other aspects of the ride, as well as points of interest the riders can
stop and look at along way. Information about the event itself, for
example ride distance and start time, was also included on the map to
supply both the city departments organizing the ride and those
participating in the ride with a single resource for reference. Using a
spatial product to convey the bike tour information provides everyone
with the same, geographically-based reference template, making it easier
and more efficient to transfer information before and during the event.
