Predicting the Risk of Car Crashes in Indiana
The Indiana State Police and the Indiana Management and Performance Hub, the state’s open data portal, have created an interactive data visualization called the Daily Crash Prediction Map which plots information about the crash risk of different roadways throughout the state. The Daily Crash Prediction Map uses machine learning to analyze historical crash data, Census data, traffic information, and data about road conditions and weather to assign a “low,” “medium,” or “high,” risk prediction for every square kilometer of Indiana’s roadways. Users can identify the crash risk of specific addresses, as well as compare how crash risk changes based on time of day.
