Tracking parking restrictions

Blog_Tracking_parking_restrictions.png

The Village of Norridge is a densely populated community with many
residential streets running through each neighborhood. Parking
restrictions can vary from street to street, and in some instances, vary
on the same street. The village keeps a list of each parking
restriction in the municipal code, but it can be difficult to track each
restriction based on a list. The village of Norridge requested that a
map be created showing every parking restriction, so that if a resident
had any questions, a village employee could access the information
easily.

By using the restrictions listed in the municipal code, a map was
created highlighting every street that had some sort of parking
restriction. The data was then ported over to the in-house mapping
software, MapOffice™ Advanced, so that it could be easily accessed on
any village computer. The restrictions for each area were stored with
the data so that if a village employee wants to see what type of
restrictions are on a specific street, all they have to do is click on
the section to get the detailed information. By using GIS, the village
has taken information already available, and moved it from a cumbersome
format to one that is far more accessible.
