The Village of Lincolnshire Public Works Department conducts a
Pavement Patch and Repair Program for Village Streets in need of work.
The goal of this program is to maintain and repair roads within the
Village that have been identified that work needs to be done to improve
the quality of the surface.
The GIS Department was approached by the Public Works Department to
take an existing database of information and link to the GIS system to
help locate and identify the patching locations throughout the Village.
The database contained all location information, type of repairs, range
of repairs, classification system of the repairs, and other key pieces
of information that is needed to conduct this program.
The GIS Department used the provided database and mapped all the
Pavement Patching Locations. Using available software and tools, the GIS
Department was able to link the database and it’s records and assign a
location within the Village. These locations then were turned into
mapping points which contained the data from the database.
The end result of this task was the Village was able to take
information, map that information, and then visualize the information in
a mapping environment. The mapping products then can be used for
planning purposes, inventory, and reporting as the Pavement Patch and
Repair Program is being conducted.
