Justin Jobin, GIS Coordinator for The Town of Jamestown, RI

To any city or town sidewalks pose a large threat. Trips and falls on public sidewalks represent a large percentage of most towns insurance claims. The Town of Jamestown RI set out to inventory and assess the condition of all sidewalks in Town. We wanted to use an in-house cradle to crave approach. After a lengthy brainstorming sessions we decided upon a two part approach. First, we would inventory sidewalk segments in the Town, using our Trimble Geo7 we collected basic attributes for each sidewalk segment. Attributes collected included: length, width, to and from points, street name and side of street, and surface and curb typed. Secondly, a separate geodatabase was created with the sidewalk inspection criteria. This geodatabase was published as a service to the Town’s ArcGIS Online. Using an iPad with Collector for ArcGIS installed, staff went out and completed inspections of all the previously identified sidewalk segments. The geodatabase was then pulled back into ArcMap where we mapped the sidewalk conditions and completed a final report that includes replacement strategy and costs.
