Strava Metro Datasets

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) State Safety Office (SSO) acquired bicyclist and pedestrian related datasets from Strava Metro (https://metro.strava.com/) for 2012 through 2017. FDOT SSO publishes the datasets through the Unified Basemap Repository (UBR). Data are provided to authorized users through the FDOT UBR.

Progress with Crash Location Processing

Crash location processing is moving forward, but slower than the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) State Safety Office (SSO) would like. SSO crash locators work to complete processing critical crash locations in 2017 and make those data available for immediate research. SSO crash locators also continue processing the 2016 crash location backlog. “Critical crashes” are crash records for which any of the persons involved has an injury severity of “fatal (within 30 days)” or “incapacitating” or for which the reporting officer has indicated non-vehicle property damage. The locations for critical crashes in 2016 are complete and for 2017 are about 95% complete.

Query the Latest Located Crashes with SSOGis

SSOGis is a web-based query tool that shows current crash locations in a publicly accessible map-based interface. Critical crashes (crashes containing one or more people with fatal or serious injuries) with completed location processing in 2016, 2017 and 2018 are available in SSOGis. The data are refreshed every weekend with the previous week’s updates and additions.

Coming Soon: 2015 Crash Shapefiles

The crash location shapefiles for 2015 are coming very soon. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) State Safety Office (SSO) generated a statewide annual shapefile for 2015. FDOT SSO will publish the 2015 crash shapefile after completing metadata (data dictionary information) to go with it. At that time, FDOT SSO will also publish a 2016 crash shapefile with completed location processing to date.

Purging Crash Data

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) State Safety Office (SSO) will purge 2006 crash data after completing (1) location processing of 2016 data, (2) analyzing crash rates for 2016, and (3) releasing 2016 crash rate analyses. FDOT anticipates finishing these tasks in a few months.

SSOGis Query Tool Updated with Current Crash Location Data

The SSOGis Query Tool has been updated. As of the end of September we have made the 2014 and 2015 crash points available in our State Safety Office GIS (SSOGis) Query Tool on our Traffic Safety Web Portal (TSWP). The Query Tool has a function that allows you to download data in Excel, Word or as a shapefile. This is not in the same format as the Unified Basemap Repository (UBR) files, but this, we hope, will be our new way of sharing located crash data in GIS format. The site currently has the complete years of data from 2011 through 2015 and shows some locations for 2016 and 2017. Ultimately, it will show all of our currently located crashes, refreshed weekly. We are still working to implement the weekly refresh function. These crash points will also be published in the Department’s GIS Enterprise View (GEV). Older years are available as static layers in the old format but cannot be actively filtered using the query tool.

Crash Data Academy Webinar Series

The Florida Department of Transportation – State Safety Office launched the Crash Data Academy webinar series in April 2016, and now the new schedule for fiscal year 2018 is posted: http://www.fdot.gov/safety/11A-SafetyEngineering/crash%20data%20academy/academy.shtm . The focus of the webinar series is to inform, educate and train both professional and public audiences on a multitude of topics related to crash data. The series will be a platform for FDOT and our partner agencies to reach data users with important information about the collection, quality and use of crash data to improve Florida’s transportation, health and land use disciplines.

2014 Shapefiles are Available

The Safety Office has posted the Crash Points Shapefiles for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. The new files are available in the Safety Office SharePoint site parsed out by District and County. The statewide files are more broadly available via the Department's Unified Basemap Repository (UBR), and have been posted in the FDOT ArcGIS Online site as well: Safety GIS data \\COdata\Shares\CO\Safety\Statewide-Share\CAR System Standard Reports\Published_GISdata\All Roads Files UBR internet view - https://www3.dot.state.fl.us/unifiedbasemaprepository/ intranet view - http://webapp01.dot.state.fl.us/unifiedbasemaprepository ArcGIS Online 2011 - http://arcg.is/1B47X5Y 2012 - http://arcg.is/1B47Kjc 2013 - http://arcg.is/1B4895j 2014 - http://arcg.is/1MQO0fK

SSOGis Query Tool Must Be Accessed Using Internet Explorer

Since the SSOGis query tool has been developed using Silverlight, and since Silverlight is not supported by Google's Chrome browser, the SSOGis query tool will not function when accessed using Chrome. Internet Explorer (IE) 10 and earlier should not have any problem and as of this posting, it still was working for Firefox. If you have problems accessing the SSOGis please be sure that you are using a compatible browser before reporting any issues. We are working to update the application to HTML5, but it will take some time before the new version is ready.

AADT Methodology for All Roads

The Florida Department of Transportation Safety Office is required to identify and address traffic crashes on public roads that are maintain by state or local entity. However, data for local roads is not always complete; therefore, the FDOT Safety must use innovative approaches to account for this shortfall. The AADT Allocator process was developed in order to better estimate traffic volumes (AADT) for all streets and roads in Florida. The underlying principle of the Allocator process is to use the results of the Turnpike State Model (TSM) statewide transportation model and apply it to all roads and streets in Florida. This document describes the Allocator process. To review documentation of this process, select Publications from the menu and click the "AADT Methodology for All Roads" title under the Policies, Procedures, Disclaimers & Credits section.

Florida Traffic Data Sources

Florida Traffic Safety Metadata – Information concerning transportation related safety data across multiple agencies can be found at the "Download" section of the portal (see the link to the left). As of April 1, 2011 Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and the Florida Department of Transportation data is included in the spreadsheet. Future enhancements will include information from other state agencies (Department of Health, and Agency for Health Care Administration).
