News Image ADA Pedestrian Ramp Project
The approved American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan is still in process. GIS staff and Student Professionals have collected 100% of the total project asset inventory.  Through the Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) process, staff has identified problematic locations in need of handicap ramps.  The GIS staff has finished inspecting these problematic locations and has met with the Engineering, Transportation and Public Services Division to mitigate these locations for the upcoming Capital Improvement Projects. Using Global Position Satellites (GPS) devices to collect and document these locations enabled staff to automate the input process and assure data consistency.  An interactive mapping interface is in the process of development for the purpose of maintenance, construction priorities, and to allow residents the opportunity to request new ramp locations.

Proposed GIS Lab GIS Laboratory
The GIS Lab is now being utilized by staff.  Staff continues to schedule training sessions to offer various departments the opportunity to learn GIS.  A number of web-based applications have been developed that allow staff to utilize GIS for certain tasks from their existing computer stations.

News Image GIS Data Dictionary
The GIS Staff has developed an online data dictionary. The Metadata Explorer is the web interface application, which enables users to discover and use City's GIS data repository. A key finding of the City's GIS Strategic Plan was that City staff needs easy-to-access information on what GIS data are available, where data are located, how often data are updated and by whom. Staff also needs information about GIS Layers and attributes that facilitate effective use of GIS data. This application addresses that need and results in broader use and benefit from GIS within the City of Inglewood. The latest ESRI metadata tools are being utilized to document data according to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Federal Geographical Data Committee (FGDC) standard formats.
