Erick Lobao - an OSU Geography alumni (who finished his MA in GEOG in 2004 with Alan Murray) was in the news lately. Erick works at T&M, a consulting firm, and was in charge of the project.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Columbus has rolled out a new website that will allow residents to track whether snowplows have treated their streets.
The site,, shows a map of the city and color-coded lines that indicate when a street was treated.
Users can type in their address to see whether their street has been treated. It also has a setting that shows each street’s priority level for treatment during a snow storm.
