As part of our ongoing efforts to make ClearPath Weather and our web-based maintenance decision support system (MDSS) as intuitive, user-friendly and efficient as possible, Iteris is now introducing a new dashboard display on both the ClearPath Weather and MDSS platforms.
The Dashboard, which allows users to view all of their favorites in one place, is personalized according to each user's individual account preferences and displays a quick overview of any weather impacts that are expected for specific areas.
Get the scoop as soon as you log in
To access the Dashboard, simply click on the Dashboard switch at the top right of the menu bar upon logging in. This will show a set of panels with weather information on your favorited items, making it easier to locate any significant weather in areas you have previously selected. The single click to view your favorites makes it faster to observe what’s going on in your area and react quickly.
See your favorites
To view the items in your Dashboard, you must first have favorite items. Items available to favorite are forecast sites and routes, RWIS sites, FAA/NWS sites, and cameras. You can favorite an item by one of two methods:
- On the map view, select the route, camera or site you would like to receive information for and in the top right of the panel that opens on the right-hand side of your screen you will see a white star. Click once in the star and it will turn gold, indicating that it has been added as a favorite.
- Open a list view, located in the overlay panel to the right of the route, camera or sites option. Each option has a white star next to it. Click once in the star and it will turn gold, indicating that it has been added as a favorite.
Once your items have been selected as favorites, they will automatically appear in the Dashboard.
See problems on your routes at a glance
The Dashboard provides quick and easy access to weather information on the routes you have selected. Air and pavement temperature, current precipitation, alerts and current images are displayed for each route, camera or site you have favorited all in one place. You can observe any current or near future weather hazards in your area. Each item can also be expanded for more information to gain a better understanding of the surrounding weather. This provides an easy way to see hazards on your route quickly.
This winter, trucks and mobile RWIS will be added to the list of favorites so you can view information and camera images from the vehicles within the Dashboard. The MDSS Mobile app will include the Dashboard feature as well, using the same favorited items identified for your account, allowing you to favorite items on both platforms.
