Developing the Monroe County Crash Map
Presented by Michael Governale, President of Reconnect Rochester, and Nicholas Livadas, Founder of Livadas Consulting.

Between 2010-2014 there were 22,389 car crashes in Monroe County, NY which resulted in at least one injury or fatality. The volunteers at Reconnect Rochester developed a way to filter and map this data provided by the New York State Dept. of Transportation. The Monroe County Crash Map they created allows users to interact with each crash and discover the deadliest segments of local roadways.

ArcGIS Collector App for Stormwater Inspections

Dan Allen, GISP MRB Group

MRB Group assisted the Town of Ontario (Wayne County, NY) with the completion of its 2013 Stormwater Phase II inspections. Instead of using paper forms, the Town leveraged its investment in GIS outfall mapping and combined it with ArcGIS Online, and the ESRI Collector App to complete the inspections digitally with smartphone devices. Digital photos of every outfall were also taken with the Collector App and automatically attached to the inspection points. The reporting functions of ArcGIS 10.1 desktop software was then used to generate an automatic paper report for every inspection with the attached photo displayed.

This presentation will cover a technical overview of the process used, in addition to considerations for planning future projects of this type.

GIS and Active Transportation

Elizabeth Murphy, Active Transportation Specialist, Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency

David Kruse, Community Planner, SRF & Associates 

Active Transportation is a hot topic in local and regional planning; it encompasses modes of transportation other than the personal motor vehicle.  Climate change, fuel prices, and public health considerations have communities across the nation re-thinking transportation networks and infrastructure to better accommodate pedestrian and bicycle mobility, as well as public transit.  GIS is a critical tool being used by decision makers to take inventory of existing conditions and target priority improvements in the transportation network.
