Supporting new water meter tracking technology with GIS

The Village of Deerfield Public WorksWater Department is in the
process of replacing their old water meters with new touchradio reads.
This involves each meter being physically replaced with a new one and as
you can imagine is very time consuming. Another restriction is,
tracking which and where each one has been replaced. So to assist with
this process, Public Works asked the Village of Deerfield GIS Department
to plot each one that has been replaced, has not, and ones with only
the head being replaced.

By teaming up with GIS the Public WorksWater Department can now more
effectively (time) and efficiently (routing) tackle areasaddresses
where meters have not been replaced. Also for the first time, the map
allows for them to visually view their work.
