Using Collector for ArcGIS, the City of Vancouver was able to collect asset and condition information for over 10k curb ramps and 620 center-line miles of sidewalk. Along with the sidewalk and curb ramp asset information, the city collected roughly 170k defect points along the sidewalks. The defects that were collected were used to determine the condition of each sidewalk segment and curb ramp. Additionally, as part of the project, the city hired a planning consultant, who helped identify pedestrian demand across the entire city. This resulted in a layer with 5 demand classes (1 being lowest demand and 5 being highest demand). The demand information was used to help identify sidewalk and curb ramp priority. Finally, using all of the collected data, the city built several dashboards and other web tools that allows managers and leaders to visualize and mine the collected data. Today the city uses a combination of these tools and others to communicate and track sidewalk issues, repairs, and correspondence with property owners.
