Have you ever wondered ‘Who is responsible for maintaining my road?’ or ‘How much traffic is on my road?’ Well now, from the comfort of your computer, you can search for and find this information using a new application called Road Information Locator (ROLO).
The Larimer County Public Works Division in conjunction with the Facilities and Information Technology Division have created and released ROLO, an application that gives you the ability to view a variety of Larimer County Roadway assets using an online map by going to Larimer County’s Public Works page at: http://larimer.org/publicworks/
and clicking on ‘Road Information Locator’ under ‘Hot Topics
What are roadway assets? Roadway asset data includes the county’s road system, who is responsible for maintaining those roads, signs, culverts, bridges, traffic count information, crash information, plus much more. Roads are one of the largest, most expensive assets, by group, owned by Larimer County. The application gives the user access to this detailed information and combines it with existing parcel and mapping data to provide an easy to use application. Road Information Locator (ROLO) also incorporates multiple tools for measurement, data selection, mapping mark-ups and the printing of annotated maps.
A comprehensive overview document can be found under the ‘Help’ button within the application. This document provides steps on how to use the application as well as detailed descriptions and examples of the roadway assets. Questions or comments can be directed to Ali Whitcomb, Senior Business Analyst at 970.498.5743 or email@example.com.
Last spring, Larimer County’s in-house version of this program won several awards. The in-house program called ‘RIL’, Road Information Locator, was named one of four top innovations inLarimer County government, and subsequently received the 1st place award in the Savvy Web Application competition at the 25th Annual AASHTO* GIS-T (Geographic Information Systems for Transportation) Symposium in Loveland, Colorado. RIL was selected by a panel of peer judges from a field of 12 web based transportation GIS applications submitted by transportation agencies across the US. Post-awards, the efforts went into bringing RIL to the public in the form of ROLO.
