SAGINAW COUNTY ROAD COMMISSION

The Saginaw County Road Commission used the CompassCom solution as part of their snow fighting effort.

Averaging more than 40 inches a year, Saginaw County, Michigan, may not set the national record for snowfall. Even so, the county’s more than 196,000 residents often suffer harsh winters that would paralyze traffic if it weren’t for the intrepid maintenance crews of the Saginaw County Road Commission.

WYOMING DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is responsible for keeping roads and highways clear of snow across more than 93,000 square miles of remote, and often treacherous, terrain. In 2009, WYDOT implemented the CompassCom Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solution (sometimes referred to as Automatic Vehicle Location or AVL) with a primary goal of enhancing the safety of travelers and state personnel during winter storms. The department complemented the MRM with mobile tablets that allow plow drivers and supervisors to respond quickly to weather-related incidents and report them directly to the public as needed.

FLORIDA KEYS MOSQUITO

GIS and Telematics Are the Foundation of Florida Keys Mosquito Control Technology

For over a century, Florida has been battling infestations of disease-carrying insects. The Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, which has offices in Key Largo, Key West and Marathon, is one of dozens established to control the mosquito populations in the state. The District is working to ensure public health and welfare of residents and visitors in the Florida Keys archipelago stretching more than 100 miles off the state’s southern coast.
The District deploys a fleet of land vehicles, boats, helicopters and airplanes to apply insecticides on the numerous islands comprising the Keys. Their main targets are the handful of species, including Aedes aegypti, known for spreading disease such as the Zika and West Nile Viruses, Dengue Fever and Chikungunya. As spray applications became more complicated due to protection of environmentally sensitive areas, the District turned to the CompassCom Mobile Resource Management (MRM) as one solution to assist in ensuring adulticides and larvicides are applied correctly.
