Raven 'Ohio Motorist' app. for Android

UPublish story by Raven Labs

Introducing ‘Raven Geospatial Labs’, a small group of folks based out of Ohio who

are passionate about Mobile Computing and Location Based Services.

They have recently published a productivity app. called ‘Ohio Motorist’ (OM) for the Android platform.

The app. intends is to arm folks with real-time data on their mobile smart-device, before they set

out on their daily commute.

To accomplish this, it gathers the user’s physical location from the GPS sensor on their smart-phone.

It then queries Ohio DOT’s ‘Buckeye Traffic’ system for real-time data, and presents the same to the user

based on their proximity to the information reported.

The app. reports live feeds from over 300 traffic cameras statewide, in addition to detailed information

about scheduled road-works, and incident related alerts that are crowd sourced from Twitter users.

The app. is free, and is available on Google Play at the following URL:
