Dorchester County Public Schools collaborates with the City of Cambridge

Dorchester County Public Schools collaborates with the City of Cambridge

 

Students from the Dorchester Career & Technology Center are partnering with the City of Cambridge Department of Public Works to make sidewalks in the city compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Students learned how to use a phone app that will enable them to take pictures of non-compliant sidewalks and upload them to make a geographic information systems (GIS) map which will allow city planners to gather, process, manage, and analyze the data. It will help them determine ‘hot spots’ where they can focus their resources to remedy the most serious issues. A serious issue might be a broken sidewalk or a sidewalk that is impeded by a utility pole. After this initial training, students will pair up with city employees to go out and locate sidewalks and upload pictures of into the app. GIS maps are used in almost every industry in a variety of settings. Thanks to the city for allowing our students to become familiar with this technology.
