navscout has a lot of data that you can use to keep safe at home or on the road. In order for this information to be impactful, it needs to be present where you need it. Maps are a powerful tool for presenting geo-data and so it makes sense to use maps to bring report data where you need it. That is why navscout now has two improvements to its maps that bring data closer to where it can have an impact.
A route map shows the path that a trip will take and is very useful. navscout now makes this even more useful by coloring the path to show changing conditions along a route.
Numeric data is shown using a gradient as is shown below. The legend on the side indicates the minimim and maximum wind speed in this example. In addition to checking the wind speed along a route, a driver can check cloud coverage, temperature, probability of precipitation, and other numeric data.
Categorical data is shown using a color palette where each color represents a different value which is inicated on the legend on the right of the map. In the example below the driver is checking weather conditions along the route. In addition to checking weather conditions other categorical data is available including precipitation type.
A location map shows the position of monitored locations relative to each other. navscout now indicates the number of alerts reported for each location by varying the color and adding the count to the location label.
With color route and location maps now available, navscout moves data closer to you so that you will see it sooner and can use it to make risk assessment decisions.
