WYDOT Launches New Driver Services Map
People looking for driver services office locations now have a new and improved tool at their disposal.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation recently launched a new Driver Services map on its website that shows where all 29 locations are within Wyoming. For each location, the public can access hours of operation, exam station information, physical address and directions.
“This new map provides a one-stop shop for the public when accessing information about all of our Driver Services locations,” said WYDOT Director Bill Panos. “Our customers wanted a more user friendly way to access our information, so we decided to create this new map. The map shows how WYDOT is using the latest technologies to deliver vital information to the public.”
WYDOT designed the new map to work on desktop computers and mobile devices. With so many people using mobile devices, officials wanted a map that could easily be viewed on smaller screens.
The map is on the Locations page under Driver Services on WYDOT’s website. When a person clicks on the link to the Locations page, the map loads and shows points where all of the Driver Services locations are in the state. On the left side of the page, names with thumbnail images of each location are displayed.
A person can then either click on one of the points on the map or on the thumbnail image to display the addresses and more information about a specific location.
“By displaying it both ways, a person can find a location by looking at the map or at the name and image displayed on the left side,” said Debbie Trojovsky, WYDOT’s Driver Services program manager. “This is going to be a great new tool for our customers, so they can get all the information they need about our Driver Services locations without having to click several links.”
Trojovsky and her team had the idea to create a new Driver Services map as a way to streamline information. She then worked with WYDOT’s GIS/ITS program to develop the new map at no additional cost.
“This map is a great example of working together to improve customer service for Wyoming residents,” said Vince Garcia, WYDOT’s GIS/ITS manager. “We were able to use existing resources to build this map for Driver Services without incurring any additional cost and build it in such a way that we can make changes to incorporate suggestions from the public.”
To view the map, visit WYDOT’s website at http://www.dot.state.wy.us/driverservices and view the map on that page or click the “locations” link on the right side to view a larger version.
