Winter maintenance workers are often experts at developing familiarity with the roads they maintain because of the many hours spent working those routes. Maintenance workers that are relative beginners, however, will not have had the same experience and exposure.
Making informed travel decisions when the weather makes the roads treacherous can be difficult if you’re not sure whose advice to trust. Luckily, some states have Pathfinder to help travelers understand the weather situation.
Looking for a way to view the road ahead and sub-surface conditions? The heads-up display (HUD) feature in Iteris’ web-based maintenance decision support system (WebMDSS) provides a visual representation of the analyzed and forecast pavement conditions produced by the Highway Condition Analysis and Prediction System (HiCAPS) pavement model.
With the winter season fast approaching, DTN is excited to announce the addition of a number of new features to our maintenance decision support system, ClearPath Weather.
In the weather industry, there is a lot of buzz around data resolution, usually in the context of numerical weather prediction models that provide the most important input to the weather forecast process.
When trying to determine current and near-term weather conditions, meteorologists rely on three main sources of data: surface observations, radar and satellite. The latter two of these three data sources have seen major technological improvements in the past few years, in turn providing meteorologists with a treasure trove of data that was previously unavailable.
Whether you are a new customer or a seasoned pro, you’ll likely have some questions about the full range of features that ClearPath Weather or our web-based maintenance decision support system have to offer, especially as we continue to enhance and update the platform.
Feeling frantic about the upcoming winter? Are all your maintenance operations ducks in a row? Leave the worry about the weather to Iteris. With over 20 years of weather forecasting for the transportation community, our 24/7 Weather Operations Center is staffed with experienced meteorologists forecasting the weather across the US.
As the warm days of summer transition to the cooler days of autumn, winter conditions start to appear on the horizon.
Every subscription to pavement forecast software from Iteris includes access to the web-based software, as well as the maintenance decision support system (MDSS) mobile app. Our app has many of the features of the full website on an easy-to-use mobile platform available for both Android and Apple.
