Past IEM Features tagged: idot
The featured map presents a new dataset about to be released by the Iowa DOT and IEM. IDOT is collecting realtime location and telemetry from over 900 trucks! The feature map presents an IEM calculated heat map of truck activity over the state on Thursday along with the winter weather advisory that was issued by the National Weather Service. It is interesting and intuitive to see these two datasets align! These IDOT trucks are only operating on state and federal roads, so local county/city trucks would not be accounted for in this analysis. These trucks are also reporting current air temperature, state of their plows, and material application rates. Look for more applications built off this dataset soon.
