MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION MODELING SYSTEM. REPORT NUMBER 19. GRAPHIC DISPLAY OF ACCIDENT DATA. STATEWIDE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

This report was prepared in December of 1972 to assist the Accident Analysis Unit in analyzing accidents occurring on a wet road surface. Accidents were selected from the accident master file and summarized to the statewide model network links. Once in this form the information (number of accidents and accident rates) was easily graphically displayed through the use of computer plotting. The state trunkline system was plotted in map form with the number of accidents or accident rate indicated for each section of road. Also, "band width" plotting was helpful in obtaining a quick diagnostic glance at the entire state. /Author/
