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.
