UrbanLogiq’s New Crash Analysis Use Case Is Here

Public officials have a particularly complex job when it comes to crash analysis. Crash data, or the information derived from the police reports following a car crash, is challenging to analyze in large volumes for a number of reasons. For starters, nomenclature and formatting vary greatly between jurisdictions, and the data is stored in file formats that don’t lend themselves to easy analysis. As a result, deriving actionable insights and reporting effectively on road safety initiatives can require a great deal of data wrangling, normalization, and analytical modelling. This ultimately hinders and slows down efforts along the road to Vision Zero.

Putting data in context

UrbanLogiq geocodes crash data from any source or format so it can be viewed on a digital map. Our new Crash Analysis use case visualizes crash data alongside relevant contextual information and user-friendly analytics, helping public officials more easily recognize and report on patterns and trends in the data. This enables city leaders to target and measure road safety initiatives more effectively, at a lower cost than traditional methods.

Below, we explore what this looks like in action.

Analyze all of your crash data in one unified platform. Quickly aggregate data by spatial layers such as intersections, road segments, corridors and council districts.
