iStreetView images support pubic works asset management inventory and condition
review. For example, the City of Hayward Public Works department can now check on the location of traffic signs, buildings,
storm drains, and other structures in support of asset inventory and assessment activities.
iStreetView™ brings together images of neighborhoods to add new insights to
support the city planning process. Planners now have the capability to see actual street and sidewalk conditions related
to environmental impact reviews. iStreetView images also supports zoning reviews. Various stakeholders during
public meetings can now share a common perspective on the city conditions under discussion.
According to the City of Hayward, iStreetView has proven to be a time and cost saving asset
in an annexation project by reviewing digital photos of the area without driving to the project site.
Public Safety Dispatchers can use iStreetView to confirm caller
locations and improve response time. Planners can use iStreetView to map out
crime or fire suppression response strategies. GIS staff can integrate iStreetView and public
safety geospatial databases with other datasets to support emergency management
activities, from field exercises to operations.
