North Carolina’s Vision Zero Map: Making Sense of Traffic Crash Patterns   

The Institute for Transportation Research and Education at North Carolina State University wanted to project the number of deaths per year resulting from risky driving behavior onto a centralized map that could be sorted by different demographics and updated by multiple sources. The solution? The North Carolina Vision Zero Map. This map was a collaborative initiative to help eliminate roadway deaths and injuries in the state. The aim was to create a single map of deaths by year in order to recognize and understand patterns and allow for easier interpretation of multiple data sets from different sources.  

This map enables policymakers and the public to see what types of accidents  specific geographic areas experience compared to other areas, and it allows them to view information sorted by different time periods, age of drivers, or type of incident. Seeing this data visually on a map gives a clear picture of the patterns that emerge over time in specific areas.  

The Vision Zero Map was launched at the end of November 2017 with ArcGIS API for JavaScript developed by Argis Solutions. Argis Solutions created a data warehouse system for the multiple data sources that would be displayed together on the same map. They also helped with UI (user interface) development, producing a responsive design for both web and mobile users.  

This system allows multiple sources of data to converge, building a more complete picture of traffic crashes because the data is aggregated together in a sensible manner. Patterns are more easily seen and detected, and the objective is to find solutions and bring awareness to what caused the accidents in the past. Eventually, the hope is to reduce traffic deaths to zero. This map is paving the way to a better driving future for the state of North Carolina.

GITA Webinar Replays Now Available

If you missed our webinars with GITA, don’t worry! They are now available online.

In the last five years, the fields of Augmented Reality and ArcGIS have merged together to create a beautiful fusion of visual functionality that is influencing the way field technicians and other specialists are able to work. While this ground-breaking tech is making waves in the media and being hinted at in movies, many wonder: is this here, right now? Is it real? GITA produced a series of two webinars that focused on answering these questions, explaining the tech propelling this change, and how the Argis Lens technology is a catalyst for some big changes. But that's just the beginning. Other technologies such as drones, machine learning, alternative interfaces for different types of AR and more play a part, too. We invite you to join us for the replay!

Part 1, titled The Advent of Augmented Reality in the GIS world, is available to view here. Simply follow the instructions to sign up, and then you will be given a link to view the webinar. For more information on this discussion, go here.

Part 2, titled Disruptive Tech in GIS: What’s Science and What’s Fiction? can be viewed here. For more information on this part of the discussion, visit here.
