Hello All,



I am new to CartoTalk and am excited to join your discussions.  I am a GIS Technician at a city government and have been tasked with redesigning our dispatch map used by the street department.  There will be two wall maps in the dispatch center (34x44):  

  • A general District / Subdistrict Map
  • And one for Snow / Salt routes

Dispatch is still paper-based and works as follows:

Assigner reviews the wall map oriented by main roads; locates the target district, then sub-district group of city blocks; i.e. District 8; then 8A,B,C,D etc., then pull the right map book for more detail.  There is a transparent plexiglass board in front of these maps used to mark off work completed / notes. 


Do you have any examples that execute street dispatch well in a print media?


Current complaints are that the district maps are too busy / hard to read, route lines are too bold etc. Thank you.


I have attached examples of the current maps.
