Description

An interdisciplinary account of the spatial analytical approaches to road traffic crashes, this book draws on the computational advances of GIS to discuss the economic, social, and scientific importance of road safety measures and traffic management. It begins with an examination of the geographical concepts of risk, then provides an overview of different types of analysis on road crashes. Lastly, it examines methods for road crash reduction and prevention. The book outlines current methodologies and approaches in a systematic and empirical way.
