The Village of Winnetka Public Works Department is in the process of creating painting schedules for all light poles in the Village. GIS was able to help accomplish this with staff assistance and MapOffice™! Previously, Midwest GIS was contracted out by Winnetka to inventory all of the signs in the Village. However, the attributes of each pole were not populated such as height and color. With the help of village staff, GIS was able to update each light pole and attribute all the necessary fields correctly.
Having the attributes populated allowed for developing basic maps for developing painting schedules. Additionally, for ease of viewing, the light pole data was brought into MapOffice™ as a custom overlay. Staff is now able to easily view the light pole data by pole type and painting schedule.
