    Post PENNDOT VideoLog: Find a Twisty Road

    For those of us with a fast connection: It's 'motion' picture road trips.
    Hint: reading the help file helps but you can go without.

    http://www.dot7.state.pa.us/ividlog/video_locate.asp

    Our Pennsylvania tax dollars at work. From the help PDF:

    "The iVidLog application allows the general public to view “thumbnail” images of
    PENNDOT’s videolog. The full size, high-resolution videolog images are only available
    to users on the state’s wide area network, using the PENNDOT Bureau of Planning and
    Research’s intranet VideoLog application. The Geographic Information Division
    developed the application."

    You're welcome, PJ!
    More from help, just in case anyone else is curious:
    "The online iVidLog for PENNDOT’s Internet is comprised of “motion pictures” which
    are available for the majority of the 40,000-mile state highway system. Each motion
    picture portrays a roadway segment. Please take note that videolog images are updated
    on a two-year cycle. The iVidLog application has three views available permitting a
    panoramic view of the roadway. The side views are optional and can be turned on using
    the left and right image on/off check boxes. Since displaying all three views will impact
    performance, particularly on computers with dial- up connections, it is recommended you
    proceed down the road using the center view only. In rare cases, only a single center
    view may be available depending on what year the route was driven. (prior to 2001)"

    Stupid Pennsylvania... I swear...
    We're not allowed to have windows tint, or buy booze in grocery stores, yet motorcyclists don't have to wear helmets, and they throw a bunch of money a stupid-arse program like this!

    Awesome program BTW...

    Nice to see this thread rise like Phoenix from the ashes!

    Not all roads are recorded. Some are recorded but bass ackwards to my peculiar orientations. They never asked me how to do it right

    Best wishes on finding that PA Twisty!
