Community Maps - Wisconsin County TSC Crash Mapping

Community Maps logo  Wisconsin DOT logo   TOPS Lab logo
New Version Notification

Community Maps was upgraded to a new version in January 2018. This version is automatically populated with crash data from the Wisconsin DT4000 police crash report database, a newly available source of accurate and timely crash locations. These crash locations are utilized at your county Traffic Safety Commission (TSC) meetings each quarter to review local crash trends and implement preventative countermeasures. They are also utilized at the state level for grant and resource allocation.

Questions about this upgrade may be directed to community-maps@topslab.wisc.edu.

Enter Community Maps

Community Maps provides Wisconsin's law enforcement agencies and county Traffic Safety Commissions with a statewide map of all police reported motor vehicle crashes from 2010 to the current year. Fatal crashes are included from 2001. Crashes are updated on a nightly basis using geo-coded locations from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation DT4000 police crash report. The Community Maps system was designed to support and enhance traffic safety planning, resource allocation, and decision support at the local level, in particular through the regular review of crashes at each of the county quarterly TSC meetings.

Community Maps is hosted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison by the Wisconsin Traffic Operations and Safety (TOPS) Laboratory in collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Bureau of Transportation Safety (BOTS).
