LIAA Supports Michigan's Longest Garage Sale
Each year, the US-12 Heritage Trail holds a garage sale along its entire route in southern Michigan, from Detroit to New Buffalo. This year, the Southwest Michigan Planning Commission (SWMPC), manager of the US-12 Heritage Trail, asked LIAA for help gathering garage sale locations so potential shoppers could easily find the sales.
LIAA created a user-contributed location feature for the Asset Mapping extension of our Community Center content management system. This feature allows anyone to add a location to the system, provide description, categorization, and custom information such as sale hours and a picture. These locations go into a queue for approval by website managers, and once approved are available for viewing on a map or online list, adding to the Asset Mapping software's custom itinerary feature, and downloading as a spreadsheet, Google Earth KML file, or in a print-ready view.
Thanks to LIAA's software and SWMPC's vision and patience, this weekend's sales are sure to be a success!
