Abstract

Currently, the collection of crash and citation data is performed by law enforcement agents without taking full advantage of existing state-of-the-art technologies. Availability of communication networks and recent developments in software technology provide opportunities to collect data in an easier, faster, and more accurate manner. Key challenges in collecting of this type of data include standardizing and capturing the right location where crashes occur as well as minimizing the exposure time of law enforcement agents at the scene. This paper describes the development of a state-of-the-art crash and citation data collection system and geospatial database, hosted by a remote server, a mobile application, and a web portal. The proposed system takes full advantage of Geographic Information and Positioning Systems to capture location data and provide tools to create scene diagrams. The proposed system was designed and implemented in cooperation with law enforcement agencies and data users to meet the needs of various stakeholders.
