Transconomy Viewer Adds Visualization for Area-Based Assets

A new feature has been added to Transconomy Viewer where users can now visualize area-based data attributes. While the modern and sleek user interface of Transconomy Viewer remains the same, this exciting enhancement presents new opportunities and use cases from an asset management perspective. For example, traditional point-based assets (such as traffic signs and posts) and segment-based assets (such as lane markings) are common requirements for many roadway asset inventories. However, area-based data attributes allow for more precise and detailed characterization of unique infrastructure asset types and inventory requirements – some examples may include parking lot pavement condition surveys, airfield pavement surveys, and orthomosaic drone imagery to name a few.

Transconomy Viewer is an enhanced data visualization and asset management tool that allows transportation agencies to visualize infrastructure data on interactive thematic maps. It also allows for easy sharing of visualized data to other users (both internal and external to an agency), decision makers, and other important stakeholders. Overall, Transconomy Viewer helps agencies understand their roadway network data to gain valuable insights and make data-driven decisions.

Transconomy Awarded Project for the City of Bowie

Transconomy was recently awarded with a project to deliver a comprehensive roadway asset inventory for the City of Bowie, Maryland. The scope of this project includes data collection and processing of an up-to-date roadway asset inventory for all highways and streets in the city, which consists of approximately 200 centerline miles. The main requirements for this roadway asset inventory are pavement condition ranking and asset extraction of traffic signs, point assets, and line assets.

As a part of this project, instructions were provided to City staff members who are responsible for performing the roadway image collection and synchronization using Transconomy Collector. Once data collection is complete, Transconomy will process the collected images to extract the required assets and deliver the asset inventory in ESRI compatible format. Enhanced data visualization will also be provided as a value-add to this project by using Transconomy Viewer.

NTPEP DataMine Deploys New UP3 Module

A new module was deployed on the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP) DataMine web application, namely the Unique, Patented, and Proprietary (UP3) module. NTPEP DataMine is an online repository of product evaluation data and audit reports that helps the Departments of Transportation (DOTs) in selecting the pre-approved products and engineering firms for highway construction projects.

The UP3 module replaces the existing AASHTO Product Evaluation List (APEL) website and provides a repository of findings from the evaluation and testing of new, innovative, and proprietary engineered transportation products and materials. Through this module, users may submit applications for testing their products under the relevant product category. These categories include AASHTO Evaluated Products, State Evaluated Products, and State Proprietary Products.

ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook PDF 2022 is Now Live

The 2022 ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook PDF is now available on the ASHRAE Technology Portal. This volume covers the topic of refrigeration equipment and systems for applications other than human comfort. It includes information on cooling, freezing, and storing food, industrial applications of refrigeration, and low-temperature refrigeration. Primarily a reference for the practicing engineer, this volume is also useful for anyone involved in cooling, storage, or transport of food products.

The ASHRAE Handbook is published as a series of four volumes, namely “HVAC Systems and Equipment”, “HVAC Applications”, “Refrigeration”, and “Fundamentals”. Revisions and updates are made to one of the four volumes every year, thus ensuring no volume is older than four years. Each volume is available in US Customary or System International (SI) units of measurement.
