The Village of Glenview contains several sidewalks that require
annually maintenance and also too, plowing during the Winter months.
Public Works Supervisor Joe Rizzo requested a map that would display 5
zones of evenly distributed sidewalks (square foot) for each zones.
Utilizing the power of Geographic Information System (GIS) the sidewalks
were analyzed and evenly distributed into 5 zones. The GIS Department
designed a map displaying the location for each sidewalk, 5 zones, which
zone each sidewalk was in, and a table showing each zone’s square
footage of sidewalk. A digital copy of this map is located on the
village’s shared network drive.
Supervisors and maintenance workers can use this map to identify
where all sidewalks are located, where each zone is (for assigning
work), the ability to quickly print (in case of emergencies) and how
much square footage of sidewalk is in each zone. The map allows for them
to more effectively and efficiently maintain sidewalks, which equals
saving time and money. The map can easily be adjusted if new sidewalks
are constructed and or removed.
Supplying the map in digital form and placing it on the villages
shared network drive allows them the ability to quickly access and print
it at anytime.
