<p><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Survey consists of responses from five organizations that develop and market accident data analysis software. Questions/topics include:</span></p>
<ul type="disc">
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Name of software</span></li>

<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Operating systems under which software runs</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Data formats and/or standards that are accommodated for data import or export</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Analytical capabilities of software (filtering/querying of data, making a comparison between the crash rates at specific locations and average crash rates, applying statistical procedures to determine locations with significant differences in accident rates from average rates, determining the crash costs before and after a specific improvement)</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Other analytical capabilities</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Reports/graphics that software can produce (high crash location lists, automated collision diagrams, presentation graphics, crash record lists, crash rates, large format printed output for meetings and presentations, three dimensional graphics, customizable reports, reports produced by applying various criteria, locations of individual crashes on a background map, aggregated crashes on a background map, specific kinds of crashes on a background map)</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Other reports/graphics the software can produce</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Can your software integrate with GIS-based information to assist in the analysis and presentation of crashes?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Does you software require GIS software (e.g. ArcView) to perform analysis and/or the presentation of GIS-based information?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Can your software link crashes to a traffic citation database?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Can your software accommodate the analysis of bicycles and pedestrian crashes?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Can the user enhance crash diagrams by, for example, using CAD drawings or digital photographs to make the diagrams more realistic?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">How many agencies and consultants are using your software?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">What options do you provide for support and training?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">What is the annual cost of support for your software?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">What is included in your annual software support contract?</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Please indicate the strengths of your software.</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: small; font-family: Arial;">Please indicate some additional features that will be added to your software in the next 12 months.</span></li>
</ul>
