Cycling accidents

Description

Visualise and geographically search 3 years of DfT data about road accidents involving cyclists.

Based on data provided by memespring http://www.memespring.co.uk/tmp/cycleaccident.xls , this project uses maps to show danger hotspots. Locations are also available for download as KML.

An experimental page also uses reverse geocoding as input to search for news about the accidents.

Future work could include analysis to determine the most dangerous roads (courtesy of @tomtaylor) and looking at areas for development, or comparison with opencyclemap.org or the sustrans routes, some of which are also available through online mapping.

Please contact me (@m4rkdh) if you would like to collaborate
