AN EXAMINATION OF POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE APPLICATIONS FOR THE CTRE INCIDENT LOCATION TOOL

This paper describes an automated system designed for both in-house and in the field collection of crash location information. Central to the system is a software application employing a map based graphical user interface (GUI) designed around geographic information system (GIS) technology. The incident location tool was designed to be a stand alone component used to process crash reports, and to be a component capable of integration with other software packages. The modular nature of the tool allowed for the integration with the Iowa DOT's electronic data collection software Advantage Safety. The benefits of GIS technology coupled with the ease of using GUI based application customized for a specific task led to a desire for research regarding other potential uses of this technology.
