[ARCHIVED] City of Muskego awarded for "Innovative Use of Data or Technology"

To improve geographic information systems, the City of Muskego’s Department of Public Works (DPW) sought to purchase a drone and associated software but found the costs prohibitive. The DPW partnered then shared with the Muskego Police Department to purchase and share use of the drone for both public works and public safety purposes. Since 2017, DPW has used the drone for mapping, tracking of utilities, producing economic development videos, and determining and documenting land violations in a safe manner. Meanwhile, police have used the drone to survey Little Muskego Lake to search for missing juveniles who had been canoeing, investigate an active arson fire, and to promote better community relations.
