The journal, published through Allen Press by AMPP (formerly the groups NACE and SPCC), publishes seven article types – original articles, invited critical reviews, technical notes, corrosion communications fast-tracked for rapid publication, special research topic issues, research letters of yearly annual conference student poster sessions, and scientific investigations of field corrosion processes.
InteractVTrans is a web-based application (desktop only) providing access to datasets used for or produced as part of the statewide transportation planning process conducted as part of VTrans, Virginia's long-range, statewide multimodal plan. This webpage provides access to these datasets and includes tutorials.
InteractVTrans has two modules: (1) MapExplorer for viewing and downloading location-specific information; and (2) DataExplorer for viewing and generating charts, graphs, and other types of infographics at local jurisdiction, planning district, construction district, or statewide levels.
The VDOT Crash Analysis Tool is a data portal that utilizes Microsoft Power BI software. It was developed by VDOT's Traffic Engineering Division, Highway Safety section for crash analysis purposes, but a publicly accessible version is available. The main source of the data is owned and maintained by the Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This site was made publicly available on October 23, 2019. It contains data from 2015-present.
A Power BI APP version is available to internal VDOT users, who must use their COV account and password to log in. External users with a Power BI license can view the Crash Tool by invitation.
