abstract

The State of Alabama has achieved 100% electronic crash (eCrash) reporting. Complete eCrash reporting allows near real-time analysis for various stakeholders. The Alabama SAFETY Portal supports these stakeholders with differing information needs providing, for example, Hotspot Analysis, data analysis, state property damage reports, and various federal reporting needs. The Alabama SAFETY Portal users include state DOT; city/county Engineers; regional and metropolitan planning organizations; local/state law enforcement; AL Office of Highway Safety. This presentation demonstrates the many analysis, visualization and reporting features available to the different users. The visualization component will highlight map-based Hotspot Analysis.
