Launch of Web-Based Viewer for AASHTO’s Digital Publications

by Sameeha Naseem

iENGINEERING successfully implemented an enhancement as part of AASHTO’s electronic publications that will now provide secure viewing of AASHTO digital publications in web browsers without the need for downloading PDFs. This feature is very useful as it provides the ability to view a publication in a web browser, which does not require any special installations, downloading of instructions, or third-party plug-ins for document export. Publications remain highly secure and encrypted when viewed using a web browser, preventing any unauthorized access. Browser-based viewing also allows electronic publications to be viewed on mobile devices, including smartphones, and tablets, thus significantly improving the overall user experience.
