S1E3 | Join the Arkansas GIS Users Forum as we host GIS and the Arkansas Crash Analytics Tool (ACAT) presented by the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ArDOT) featuring Traffic Safety Analyst Taunya Kidd.
Explorer the background of ACAT, a web-based application developed as a series of ArcGIS Online Operations Dashboards and Applications nested in an ArcGIS Story Map. Learn how this tool directly supports the strategies and goals outlined in the Arkansas Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP).
"Data Collection and Analysis is a Primary Emphasis Area in the SHSP and ACAT helps improve the timeliness, accuracy, availability, and integration of data sets to promote roadway safety at the state and local levels." - ArDOT
Discover how this tool facilitates data sharing across agencies and allows for basic analysis to identify crash locations, problem areas, and trends. See how this functionality provides for more efficient, deliberate, and informed decision-making to address safety areas of emphasis in Arkansas.
Understand how the overall implementation of this tool allows stakeholders to answer common questions quickly while freeing Traffic Safety personnel to focus on more complicated safety studies and priorities.
