Land annexed into Elk Grove Village had been on display as a map in
the Village Clerk’s Office for some time. This map served as a reference
for village staff when receiving inquiries about unincorporated
properties. Clerical staff realized the new GIS (Geographic Information
System) program provided an opportunity to update the product.
The existing annexation information provided by the map was converted
by the GIS staff into digital format and thorough investigation took
place to resolve some overlaps, gaps, and missing annexations. When
completed a new hard copy map was provided to the Clerk’s Office for
display and an electronic PDF image was created as a reference for
village staff and the public.
