Route Planning & Risk Avoidance
Trip Risk is a neat route-planning map for Melbourne, Australia which displays the accident black spots along suggested routes. The map uses open sourced data on car crashes, from the State Government of Victoria, to not only suggest a driving route but also show you all the car crashes that have taken place along the route.
The crash markers along the suggested route are sized to represent the total number of crashes at each location. You can click on the crash markers to view the number of crashes at a location and the total number of people involved in crashes. A red dot signifies a crash that involved a fatality.
The results displayed on the map can be filtered by speed and by accident type.
