Water Infrastructure Updates

The Village of Skokie’s Water and Sewer Department rely heavily on data
within the Geographic Information System (GIS) for planning and field
work. Field Note Mapbooks (FNM) were created to simplify the process of
editing the data and bridge the gap between the field crews knowledge
and the data projected in the Village’s GIS. Employees can make comments
and corrections in the paper FNM and GIS will check the book on a
quarterly basis to incorporate the changes. For example, if a valve is
not shown or shown in the wrong location, an employee can draw and
comment on the valve showing the correct location and providing all
other important information. This process was just implemented and the
first changes have been completed this month.
