In the Midwest, winter brings its own unique set of challenges to local governments. As the temperature drops and snow begins to fall, snowplows hit the road, the likelihood of sever weather events increase, and roads take a beating. Leveraging GIS as a resource for assisting staff with managing these events can help mitigate the impact a harsh winter season has on both staff time and community resources. This webinar will demonstrate several methods and technologies that are currently available in your community to help reduce your winter woes.
What you will learn:
- How to maximize the efficiency of your snowplow and salt truck operations
- How to collect data on pothole locations and manage maintenance efforts using road jurisdiction information
- How to leverage GIS during a winter emergency event situation
