State Agency Databases Activity Report 5/4/2014

It was a slow week for the volunteers at the State Agency Databases Project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases.



Today’s featured database is from Pam Crawford, who maintains the Kansas page:

Kansas Road Conditions –  http://511.ksdot.org/KanRoadPublic/Default.aspx
Database of current road conditions is searchable by region. The resulting customized map shows current road conditions due to weather or road work. Color-coding and symbols designate problems like ice, snow-pack, high water, road construction and road closures. Webcams are marked as well so you can view conditions at those locations.
