Project Request Date: 01/04/2019
Project Requested By: Freddy Lause – University of Kentucky
Principle Investigator: Tony Fields

Initial Inquiry

The request was for 5 years of KY crash data including the type of crash, type of roadway facility, weather condition, injury severity, and specific location. The requested output type was both a spreadsheet of the raw data and a GIS layer.

Project Write-up

Using the most recent 5 years of publicly available crash data merged with HIS roadway attribution, a data set was compiled with SQL Server querying tools including all crashes on Kentucky’s roadway network and the corresponding directional analysis, weather condition, and facility type. A shape file, built in ArcGIS, was also included to display crash locations.
