A GIS Accident System to Accompany CARE

This project developed a geographic information system (GIS) interface to access the crash data exported using the CARE software package. With advanced spatial query and display capabilities, the GIS-based system will enhance crash data query and display features. The system includes instant graphical access, enabling viewing and selecting of desired network locations (nodes and links). In addition to the interface development, this project examined the quality of incorporating data extracted using CARE on to a roadway network. The quality of data within the system was evaluated to see if the system was providing accurate tools for analysis to ensure proper decisions regarding application of safety funds for roadway improvements. The final focus of this project was examination of tools and statistical procedures to identify high accident locations within the case study counties.
