Community Maps Pilot Project - Phase II

Each Wisconsin county has a Traffic Safety Commission, with representation from the Highway and Sheriff's Departments. At quarterly meetings, they review the crash summary of fatalities, injuries, and reported property damages - usually presented on three hard-copy 'spot maps'. Using a Google-API based online interface, authorized users - whether internal or external - will be able to enter and plot selected data from the MV4000 WI Motor Vehicle Accident Report. Easy-to-use web-based spot maps could incorporate additional data including locally tracked crash safety factors, traffic counts, pavement conditions, and crash history. More detailed maps, and the ablility to work with them in-house, may make it easier for local decision-makers to identify 'accident prone' road segments and appropriate safety improvements.
