abstract

Do you know how many impaired male drivers, age 25 to 30 years old, crashed at intersections last year? The Center for Transportation Safety at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute is using Microsoft Power BI, a data visualization software, to explore and answer questions like this. This is an interactive and innovative platform that allows researchers to visualize and investigate crash data. It is an effective way to share data, promote consistency between projects, facilitate quick and easy access to commonly requested crash statistics, and is a useful tool for making presentations. Come SEE what’s in the data.
