Description

A demonstration map of open data crashes involving motor vehicles, bicycles and/or pedestrians reported in the City of Cambridge from January 2015 through December 2016.
PLEASE NOTE: Geocoding imperfections in this dataset could result in illusory crash "hotspots" appearing on the map. This map is simply meant to be a demonstration of how the open data portal can be used to visualize geospatial trends.
Any data or text that may identify specific persons or companies has been omitted. Please see attached MassTRAC documentation for additional explanation about crash reporting data elements.
Note: crashes involving pedestrians are indicated in the “P1 Non Motorist Desc” and “P2 Mon Motorist Desc” columns. When using Socrata's built in visualization tools to map crashes, please use the geocoded "Location" column. The column "May involve cyclist" specifies whether a given incident may involve a bicycle operator.
