Bicycle and pedestrian crash information is collected and analyzed using a GIS-based system for the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) region. The system helps identify motor vehicle crash hot spots involving pedestrians and bicyclists. This system incorporates crash data received from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Crash Records Information System (CRIS). Thematic maps displaying both location and density of crash incidents provide a visual representation of the available data.
Data collected from TxDOT’s CRIS was used to display “Reportable Crashes” that occur or originate on a traffic way which result in injury or death of any person, or damage to the property of any person to the apparent extent of $1,000. The points displaying crash sites were derived from crash reports containing latitude and longitude information, therefore additional crashes may have occurred. Maps identifying density of crashes utilize a low to very high density scale with yellow symbolizing lower concentrations of crashes and blue symbolizing higher concentration. Density concentration is calculated as a magnitude per unit area from crash point features and is based on each county’s geography.
