SWiZAPP is a mobile application developed for accurate and timely communication of real-time work-zone activities to departments of transportation staff, traffic management centers, work-zone contractors, and the traveling public. The key components of the application include a cloud-based database solution, data processing, and processing interface. The app supports automatic geolocation and mapping via on-board GPS sensors. Users are required to create accounts via the login screen, which enables the app to securely log, track, and monitor their activities. The app is available for free download through the app store.
