Blackspot is a map of vehicle collisions in the city of Edinburgh between 2010 and 2013. Using the map it is possible to see which locations in the Scottish capital had the highest number of vehicle accidents during this period.
The size of the spots on the map are scaled by the number of vehicles involved in each accident. It is also possible to change the scale by the number of casualties involved. If you select an individual spot on the map you can view details about the collision, including the date, the number of vehicles involved, the number of collisions and the weather conditions.
The map includes a large number of options to filter how the results are visualized on the map. You can filter the accidents shown by date, by time of day, by severity and by the speed limit where the accident took place.
