A recent addition to the Elk Grove Village, IL interactive mapping
application, MapOffice™, is the Business Intelligence mapping service.
Business Intelligence is a tool that is configured with community
databases such as permits, work orders, and police incidents giving the
map user the ability to dynamically map records in those databases
usually by a category and/or date range.
Currently the MapOffice™ – Business Intelligence in Elk Grove is
configured with their street light work orders, animal license, and
business license data. Using this tool Public Works employees can
quickly display the street lights that have had an issue in the past
week, month, or custom timeframe. Similarly Police staff can plot all
of the day care businesses when dealing with sex offender relocations.
Additional resources are being planned to configure with Business
Intelligence including traffic incidents and water main breaks. The
power of this tool is the ease of information access it provides to
village staff whose decision making processes benefit greatly from
supporting information from sources throughout the village, often housed
in other departments.
