DEVELOPMENT OF A PROTOTYPE GIS-BASED ACCIDENT MAPPING PROGRAM FOR KANSAS
The prototype accident mapping program was based on using an existing accident record system called KARS (Kansas Accident Record System). Some local agencies have utilized the KARS software. A method to extract the KARS accident data and have it displayed on a computer generated map was the essence of the study. It was determined from research that a geographical information system (GIS) would best present the KARS data spatially. The capability of a GIS program for various types of accident data analysis was an important factor in determining the type of mapping program used in the prototype.
