Track: Public Works
Authors: Kalen Myers
Traffic accident data is an important decision-making tool for city governments responsible for keeping municipal roadways safe. Engineering departments must have hard data on hand to warrant traffic signals and other traffic calming infrastructure. It was the challenge of the City of Evans GIS Department to find an efficient method for inputting over 750 backlogged reports. Ultimately ArcGIS Online was used to simplify the tedious process of traffic accident data entry saving valuable time.
