Project Goal

o The Indiana Daily Crash Prediction Map was built to bring awareness to specific areas of risk on Indiana’s roadways and reduce first responder response time to accidents. The map is a tool which offers the public and first responders information on high risk areas that they can build into their daily routines.

Business Problem Solved

o Roadway fatalities were up across the nation starting in 2014. In Indiana, we saw a rise of 7.5% in roadway fatalities from 2014-2015. In response, the Indiana State Police partnered with the Management Performance Hub to combat the problem through the use of data.

Technology Implemented

o The initial development of the map consisted of a two month discovery phase in which the Management Performance Hub (MPH) evaluated data sets across the state. Data was evaluated on availability, completeness, and significance in the predictive model. After the discovery phase and completion of the predictive model, MPH began building the map using Esri tools with the assistance of consultants from the EAP program. ArcGIS 10.4 was used to build the map and ArcGIS online is used to host the map.
