​Skokie is using its Geographic Information System (GIS) to aid in the
bidding process for landscaped areas in the downtown area. The Village’s
ability to create and manage data in addition to producing maps allows
them to generate products quickly and efficiently. By creating maps of
each landscaped area, the Village provides visual context to coincide
with the documented extents of the service areas for the bidding
contractors. In addition, these maps alleviate the need for Public Works
employees to drive the contractors to each location. Having the work
area limits documented both textually and visually assist both
contractor and the Village in managing the service areas.
