The City of Germantown has experienced a rise in intersection related crashes over the past several years. They currently must sort throught hundreds of documents to perform analysis on these intersections and the cause of increased crash rates. This thesis proposes a method of visual analysis of the 39 major intersections within the Germantown city limits. Visual mapping software is required for visual analysis. The incorporation of ArcGIS 10 is critical to the success of this project because it provides a means of quick visual analysis of intersection related crash data within the city. This provides Germantown officials with a starting point in their search for problem intersections. Similar projects have been performed throughout the country. Most of these were at a statewide or county level. This thesis will focus on one city and the visual crash data analysis of the corresponding 39 major intersections.
