Google Earth Inferface Module (Item# A-18)

 

Features:

         AIMS can interface with Google Inc.s Google Earth. Since Google Earth includes aerial photograph, it facilitates relating accident occurrence to the surrounding environment.

         When you click a button in AIMS, AIMS will execute Google Earth and will display the 3-dimensional plot or collision diagram on Google Earths aerial photograph.

         Once it is displayed inside Google Earth, it becomes Google Earths layer. You can use Google Earths capabilities for further processing and manipulation, such as clicking a symbol to display its descriptions, zooming-in and -out, modifying, saving, emailing, adding placemark, adding path, etc.

         If you have the AIMS Main Module, AIMS will display the intersection and mid-block accidents in 3 dimensions in Google Earth as shown in Figures A-18A and A-18B.

         If you have the AIMS Collision Diagram Roadway Layout Module, AIMS will display the collision diagram in Google Earth as shown in Figures A-18C and A-18D.

         When you click on a plotted symbol, it will display the location, date, day of the week, time, collision type, severity, etc. of the accident associated with the symbol.

         You can display hundreds of accident locations in Google Earth similar to Figures A-18A and A-18B.

         You can display collision diagrams for up to a hundred locations (intersections, mid-blocks and corridors) in Google Earth similar to Figures A-18C and A-18D.

Figure A-18A: Google Earth Interface Sample Output Displaying intersection and mid-block accidents, where I or red symbols = intersection accidents, M or blue symbols = mid-block accidents; accidents occurred at the same location are stacked on top of one another, creating a 3-dimensional view.

 

 

Figure A-18B: Google Earth Interface Sample Output Displaying accident types, where A = angle, F = fixed-object, H = head-on, L = left-turn, O = other, R = rear-end, S = side-swipe, etc. ; accidents occurred at the same location are stacked on top of one another, creating a 3-dimensional view.

 

 

Figure A-18C: Google Earth Interface Sample Output Displaying collision diagrams for one or more intersections and mid-blocks at the same time.

 

 

Figure A-18D: Google Earth Interface Sample Output Same as Figure A-18C, but zoom-in more to an intersection.
