DDOT Offering Mobile App for Public Space Permit Information
App Available for Android, Apple and Windows 8 Users
(Washington D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has begun offering an application that allows users to easily access information about public space permits on their mobile devices.
DDOT’s Public Space Permit Viewer application is a geographic information system (GIS) centric app that provides users with an opportunity to a view public space related permits on an interactive map along with corresponding information about the permit for example permit name, duration, expiration date, status, etc.
The Viewer application offers information about pending and active public space permits and is searchable by address, area, notable landmark or Ward. It is currently available for Android and Apple phones and tablets and Windows 8 tablet devices and PCs.
This new app comes on the heels of DDOT’s redesigned Transportation Online Permitting System (TOPS), which DDOT debuted in November 2013. The remodeled site offers users a more intuitive interface; a useful glossary and an interactive map that features street-view capabilities and a tool to measure public space dimensions in an area.
For more details about TOPS please visit tops.ddot.dc.gov. To contact DDOT’s Public Space Permits Center, please call (202) 442-4670.
Look out for those in need this winter. When the temperature or wind chill is 32°F or below, the District issues a Hypothermia Alert. For assistance during an Alert: call the Shelter Hotline at 1-800-535-7252 or 311. Or, send an email to the Shelter Hotline (uposh@...).
