A new central hub for road safety analytical support

28 July 2022

Agilysis is excited to announce the launch of a ‘ Data Wiki’ as a part of the analysts’ support provided for Road Safety GB, with the backing of the Department for Transport.

The ‘Data Wiki’ acts as a first-stop for anyone wanting to understand the types of data and resources that are available, and examples of modern research techniques . It has separate FAQs for different types of user including professionals, members of the public, journalists, and politicians. There is then a catalogue of articles focussing on specific areas such as ‘contributory factors’, ‘smart motorways’, ‘comparing road safety performance’, and many more. The articles are full of links to datasets, interactive maps, and existing tools which will guide users towards quick answers on potentially complex topics. There is also the opportunity for individual authorities, partnerships, and others to post their own data tools and visualisations in a showcase. Not only will this build into a fantastic central resource for casual observers, but it will also provide great examples of local best practice.
