This workshop is designed with beginners in mind, but will cover some advanced topics such as service integration, lookup lists, relevant expressions, and automation techniques. A combination of lecture and hands-on activities will be used.

Workflows for Analyzing Crash Data from the UW TOPS WisTransPortal 
Steven Parker, Program Manager, UW-Madison TOPS Laboratory
9 am – 12 pm | Thursday, May 31

The WisTransPortal, operated by the UW-Madison TOPS Laboratory, contains a complete database of Wisconsin crash data from 1994 through the current year. This database contains information on all police reported crashes in Wisconsin including the location of each crash, vehicles involved, and general crash attributes. Personal data have been removed. The TOPS Lab maintains the crash database for research purposes and as a service to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).

User accounts to access the crash data through WisTransPortal online tools are available to WisDOT and other government agencies, Wisconsin RPCs and MPOs, and universities working on WisDOT sponsored projects. Crash data is also available upon request to anyone in the general public, including government, engineering consultants, media, law firms, non-profit organizations, and individuals. Consultants and other organizations working on WisDOT projects may also obtain account access and/or copies of crash reports to fulfill project requirements.

This workshop will cover workflows for analyzing crash data from the UW TOPS WisTransPortal. Specific topics that will be covered:

* Geocoding crash points
* Ranking intersections by accident count, type, severity, etc
* Analyzing trends time of day, day of week, month of year
* How the data is processed from the local officers to the statewide database
* Identify correlations between accident count/type and specific traffic control configurations.
