Salt and Plow Tracking Added to Open Data Page
With the first taste of winter possible tonight, the City of Windsor’s Public Works Department is ready to roll out some new technology.
Residents will be able to see what roads have had salt trucks or plows pass over them by accessing the City’s Open Data page.
There will be a half hour delay between when a truck salts or plows a road and when the information updates on the open data map but the image on the map will represent a two hour period.
Each week the data will be collected and archived on the Open Data page.
The City of Windsor joined the open data movement in 2010 in an effort to further increase transparency and encourage residents to make creative use of municipal data for apps and more.
You can find the growing collection of data in the City’s Open Data Catalogue.
