Wireless network planning using GIS

​A growing desire for access to information and computer programs while
performing tasks out in the field has Elk Grove Village planning to
implement a wireless network. Inspectors, police, and fire staff would
immediately benefit from such a resource to access systems that are
constantly changing while they are out of the office or could be updated
more quickly from what they are experiencing and working on in the
field. The Geographic Information System (GIS) has been providing maps
to highlight existing village facilities where network equipment can
reside and the extent of the community that would be covered if access
points were installed at various locations. The most efficient
locations will be realized from these maps for the desired wireless
coverage that is determined.
