Comprehensive Trail Marking System

Location: Middleton, Wisconsin

JSD planners and landscape architects are currently providing assistance to the City of Middleton to develop a comprehensive trail marking system and corresponding City Trail Map and Brochure. This trail mapping project arose out of a concern to improve capabilities for emergency responders to locate persons on trails in the City’s extensive conservancy areas.

This city-wide trail marking system incorporates GPS/GIS technology, location identification markers, and wayfinding maps to improve trail safety. Through siting of location markers, combined with GIS and graphic technology, JSD is designing a City Trail Map that incorporates location markers which have been integrated into the City Police GPS database. In conjunction with map development, JSD has been assisting the City with improving trail wayfinding, traffic, and directional signage. The above images are of the draft Trails Map and Brochure developed by JSD in March 2010.
