Development of Geospatial Tools




This research project will observe Federal Land Management Agency FLMA known data keyed to safety and roadway design and provide recommendations to standardize data collection methods across FLMA partners. Some data associated with safety risk factors, such as horizontal curve radius, vertical grades, and approximate embankment slopes and heights will be aided through the geospatial analysis aspect of this research. The lack of accurate data makes it challenging for proactive, risk-based safety analyses. Done programmatically, a risk-based safety program can identify site locations that require priority attention.
