      Iowa DOT offers map showing location of snowplows

      Iowa officials want people to know where snowplows are working during winter weather.

      The state Department of Transportation is offering an interactive online map that shows where the vehicles are currently located. It's under the agency's winter driving section.

      When snowplow icons are clicked, a visitor can see where its location was last reported and what direction it was headed. It also gives the reported air temperature.

      Data is fed automatically every two minutes from the snowplows.

      The map is available via desktop or mobile device.
