Update of the Miami-Dade County GIS Crash Data System 2009

The purpose of this project was to update and maintain the Crash Data System for Miami-Dade County Traffic Engineering and MPO. The Miami- Dade crash data system is developed and hosted at the University of Florida. The system allows users to identify and map high crash locations in all the county roads based on number of crashes and injury severity. In addition, the system provides crash intersection diagrams, tables, charts and summarized reports as well as access to individual crash reports. The system is accessed via internet through a web browser. Miami- Dade County Traffic Engineering manages the access privileges for the users of the system. During the 2009-2010 contract University of Florida obtained, processed, mapped and loaded the long form crashes for year 2009. This included automobile, bicycle and pedestrian crashes. The raw crash data was obtained from Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). The data was converted in a suitable database format and was mapped to the Miami-Dade streets. Additionally, new software features were added to the system. They include ability to produce reports with an expanded list of attributes for bicycle and pedestrian crashes and the ability to export the full set of crash attributes. University of Florida provided on-site training for the Traffic Engineering and MPO users. The current crash database includes long form crashes in all Miami-Dade roads for years 2005 through 2009. The crash data system is functional and available for Miami-Dade County users. UF will provide $35,640 through Miami-Dade Public Works.
