abstract

Washington College GIS Program developed a web mapping application RAVEN (Risk Analysis of Vehicle Environment Network) for Maryland Highway Safety Office to transform static analysis by giving users a dynamic visualization for the state of Maryland. The data layers inside of the web application correlate with the Maryland Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) that targets dangerous behaviors such as occupant protection, aggressive, impaired, and distracted driving. This presentation focuses on providing the who, what, where, why, and how of the RAVEN web application.
