History

Date Posted to GIS:
2007
  • 2007: Traditionally, sidewalks were represented in the GIS as polygons. Calculating linear distances off sidewalks was difficult due to nature of the geometry. A new linear feature class was created by estimating the centerline of the sidewalk polygons and digitizing this line work into the GIS.

Quality

Accuracy
  • Centerline is a very close estimation of the true sidewalk centerline
  • Spatial information is collected and entered using the best method applicable to this dataset.
  • Spatial information is higly accurate and reasonably the best it can be.
  • Where multiple collection/entry methods, the more accurate method is predominant throughout this dataset.
Completeness
  • Spatial information is known to be complete, expected to be complete or very close to complete.

Maintenance

The Design department submits engineering drawings to the GIS department. Sidewalk centerline information is updated accordingly.
