Interactive Map (previous version): State DOT Usage of NTPEP

I designed and developed the 2013 version of the interactive JavaScript map for AASHTO’s National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP).

Update: 7/26/2015  See post “Interactive NTPEP Map – JavaScript, SVG, JSON, Python” to view the second version of this map which is responsive, includes click instead of hover functionality, and a drop down menu by which users can select a product type and see those states turn.

If the interactive map does not appear in this space, your browser needs to be updated.

This podcast provides a summary of how impact testing is conducted on traffic control products, specifically delineators and drums. It outlines how product performance is measured and reported.

To learn more about the testing protocol and data usage for the Temporary Traffic Control Device technical committee at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), click here. Testing results are posted in DataMine, a central repository of data for the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP).

The Benefits of NTPEP

AASHTO’s National Transportation Product Evaluation Program is a public-private partnership that prevents duplication of efforts among the 52 State Departments of Transportation. This audio-enhanced, animated slideshow outlines the benefits states receive by participating in this rapidly growing technical service program.

Solid-Not Slavish Relationship – Promo

produced by Lindsay Brown


Promo for the Solid-Not Slavish Relationship by LindsayBrown81

“The Solid-Not Slavish Relationship: Britain’s Media Coverage of America from September 2009 to July 2010” was produced by Lindsay Brown in part fulfillment of a Masters level dissertation for Edinburgh Napier University’s graduate program in Journalism.

Barack Obama and David Cameron renamed the relationship the “Essential Relationship” in May 2011. The original phrase the “Special Relationship” was coined shortly after World World II when Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt shared a close working relationship that ebbed and flowed throughout their tenures in power.
