  • Abstract:
    An analysis effort was undertaken to illustrate the advantages of a geographic information system (GIS)-based crash analysis system. The problem selected was the identification and analysis of high-truck-crash locations, both along designated truck corridors and on other roadways within Wake County, North Carolina. The goal of the study was to determine if there are benefits to using a GIS-based crash referencing system over the traditional data bases that contain crash, roadway feature, and operations data that can be linked by location. Specific objectives for the project included: 1) identifying high-truck-crash locations using the GIS-based system, and 2) exploring the applicability of non-traditional data bases to this type of analysis. This summary report presents the results of this analysis.
