LTS Dayton Has a New Home

2 minute read

A few years ago, I attended a presentation by the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) at The Adventure Summit about how they had adapted a Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) analysis to the 2015 Update to the MVPRC Bikeways Plan.

The presentation piqued my interest, and I followed up with the speaker afterwards to obtain a copy of the data used by MVRPC for the LTS analysis. I transformed the data into a web app that was hosted on Azure. The app has always been near and dear to my heart, both because I do a fair bit of bicycle commuting myself and because I gave a talk about it a local meetup that lead directly to my current role at AIS building geospatial web apps. For more info on the app and the data behind it, check out the README.

The last time I checked on LTS Dayton, it occurred to me that it was really just a static site and there was no reason it needed a full-fledged web server. It has Express bundled with it, but that is really only necessary for local development to avoid cross-origin requests. Anything that can serve up static HTML, CSS, and JavaScript could serve up LTS Dayton.

Today I migrated it from Azure to its new home on this site, powered by GitHub Pages. The only changes I had to make were updating the Leaflet CDN references to HTTPS, since this site uses HTTPS.

Ladies and gentlemen, LTS Dayton!
