Otago Uni creates online injured cyclist-door crash map

Feb 8th, 2012

Just noticed Otago University have been working on a NZ wide aid to residents, and I also think it could be looked at as another “helper” in the mix for folk considering their options about living in certain areas.

They mention their aim ;

A searchable online map showing where in New Zealand cyclists have been injured as a result of car doors opening has been created by University of Otago injury prevention researchers.

Currently the map shows approximately 245 cycle door injury location over this 2007-11 period and indicates their seriousness and the direction the cyclist was traveling. And because its an overlay that rests on-top of Google Maps, its a breeze to use and visualise.

Great idea, and again, shows the advantages that the web can offer up each and every day.
