Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Caitlin Doolin
Transportation professionals, more and more, turn to mapping crashes to evaluate safety. This presentation outlines best practice crash mapping techniques that demonstrate the safety story. It will demonstrate how to take analysis and create maps that pinpoint challenges so that solutions can be developed.
This presentation will review two project examples, a corridor in downtown Philadelphia and a section of I-95 in Maryland, to show best practices for telling the safety story through mapping.
