State and Local Safety Data Integration

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 1:30 PM-4:30 PM, Convention Center
Nancy Lefler, UNC Highway Safety Research Center, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems; Roadway Safety Data; Standing Committee on Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems; Standing Committee on Geographic Information Science and Applications; and Standing Committee on Transportation Safety Management

Incorporating information into safety analysis and program development requires the integration of information on state and local crashes, roadways, and traffic—a task that often proves problematic. This workshop reviews the scope and issues related to local safety data integration, including data integration needs for transportation state and local planning, major challenges, potential sharing methods using spatial technologies, the role of standards, and successful techniques.
