About the research

The objective of this project is to develop and implement techniques to effectively convey winter weather crash trends, identify potentially hazardous locations, and discover possible common factors among winter weather crashes. This work generally involves two sets of skills and they are: 1) the ability to access, analyze and graphically and numerically present statistics from Iowa?s crash database, and 2) the ability to interpret the meaning of crash events and understand and interpret crash trends.
