Florida GIS-based system earns national safety award

Right: Award-winning Crash Data Management System enables different agencies to assess regional and local crash related issues, roadway characteristics and other safety concerns

A portable, GIS-based management program that targets engineering and safety concerns this week earned Florida DOT one of eight Roadway Safety Awards announced by the US Roadway Safety Foundation (RSF) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

Florida DOT’s Crash Data Management System (CDMS) enables different agencies to assess regional and local crash related issues, roadway characteristics and other such safety concerns.

Developed by Florida Department of Transportation’s District 7, based in Tampa, CDMS provides innovative and timely solutions to address engineering and safety issues through the analysis of crash data.

It includes tools such as query-based thematic mapping, GIS-based collision diagramming, GIS-based collision comparison and Structured Query Language (SQL) query building tools along with data sharing functionality.

CDMS can cross-reference county and state data sources to assess regional and local crash related issues. It can also correlate safety studies, projects, work program data, roadway characteristics, Strategic Highway Safety Plans (SHSP) and crash data, to provide a better picture of crash-related problems and safety concerns.
