City of Thousand Oaks Mobile GIS Sidewalk Inspection Program
Track: Public Works
Authors: Mary Anne Van Zuyle
The City of Thousand Oaks implemented a GIS-based sidewalk inspection program to perform due diligence in maintaining sidewalks to reduce City “trip and fall” liability. Inspectors go into the field with a tablet computer, select sidewalks from a map, and record inspections. They drop defects on the map and add information about their type, severity and dimension. Defects are linked to sidewalks based on location proximity in the GIS. Work orders with asset information are added to the CMMS.
