GIS and your local Farmer’s Market

The Riverside Farmers Market is a weekly service The Village of Riverside, IL organizes for its residents.  Held
every Wednesday from 2:30 – 7:00 PM during the summer and fall in 2011,
The Market has had many vendors and community groups participate
throughout the season.  The Village has tasked its
Geographic Information System (GIS) to create event maps to communicate
to the vendors and groups their setup locations.  With
growing interest and turnout the setup locations have often changed from
week to week making the event map that much more useful in staging the
event.
