This project aims to make the public more aware of how many crashes and deaths happen each year. Using data from Open Data NI, as a team we designed and created assets which would efficiently put across our message it an engaging and overall attention-grabbing manner. We want this tool to retain the numbers and statistics in the public’s mind all the time. We hear about road death statistics when a collision happens, rather than having a tool which updates as more collisions happens. This is a service which will no doubt be useful to educating the public. Analysing The data revealed some interesting statistics such as most crashes occur on a Wednesday. The most effective way to display this information was using an interactive map of northern Ireland. With different variables such as speed and road type, the website is capable of displaying accurate and detailed information to its users.

When we began this project we had to carefully analyse the open data NI portal to look at datasets that we felt we could create a genuine argument for and help to promote change/ raise public awareness on the topic. As a group of 4 we all decided that road traffic collisions in Northern Ireland was a topic that we felt we could use data to create visualisations and info-graphics for , when we started to analyse the data sets we found interesting anomalies and correlations throughout that would help us with this important topic . We aimed to present clear and concise arguments using data that would help influence change , If you have found this project interesting please support by sharing and spreading this website amongst friends ,families and colleges.
