The North East Regional Road Safety Resource, in partnership with the Tyne and Wear Traffic and Accident Data Unit (TADU) and Gateshead Council’s Geospatial Systems Team have developed an interactive map showing the locations of all the North East’s road user casualties by severity and road user type over the past three years.
Whilst there are several online maps available from other sources that provide a similar service to this map (showing the location, and giving a brief summary of casualties in a selected area), the Resource’s Interactive Casualty Map is a unique project as it gives our website’s visitors access to a live snapshot of sanitised casualty data as it currently appears on the North East’s combined casualty database. This means that as soon as a casualty is entered onto this database it will appear on the Interactive Casualty Map, giving the website visitor a fully up-to-date view of casualties in the North East.
