Heat Maps, 'Green Dot Management,' and GIS
Track: Public Works
Authors: John McCabe, Noushin Adabi
Heat maps quickly communicate readily-understandable information. They allow upper management to see at-a-glance information that maintenance staff intuitively know, such as locations where there have been a history of problems. Similarly, “green dot management” uses maps to quickly show locations with problems (in red) and fixes (in green). All of this leverages the City’s GIS-centric CMMS on ArcGIS Server. It’s possible because staff uses GIS to tie work history to specific asset(s).
