Tracking road maintenance history in GIS

Blog_Trackingroadmaintenance.jpg

​For years Elk Grove Village has been maintaining a database to track
roadway pavement history and ratings. With their Geographic Information
System (GIS) they have been able to integrate the database information
into a geographic representation on their roadways which allows for maps
to be generated showing the results of a query for specific surface
material, base material, maintenance frequency, etc. Using the
flexibility of their interactive mapping program the GIS staff has made
the pavement history available to all staff. Simply clicking on any
road segment will list the years in which maintenance was performed and
specifics about each maintenance activity saving staff time to gather
the desired information.
