WVDOH Web-Accessible Crash Database Deployment

Electronic crash reports that are completed by state, county, and local police officers in West Virginia are transmitted electronically to a central system provided by VS Visual Statement Incorporated. The crash reports can be accessed using their ReportBeam collision reporting system. Due to the limitations of the ReportBeam system for analyzing the crash data for safety applications, the West Virginia Division of Highways downloads the crash records from ReportBeam and utilizes Microsoft Access to generate various reports and conduct analysis. As the amount of crash records in the database continue to increase, the ability of Microsoft Access to manage this data decreases. In order to maximize the value and accessibility of the available crash data, the West Virginia Department of Highways (WVDOH) has initiated this project to deploy an online relational Structured Query Language (SQL) database.
