GCAT (GIS Crash Analysis Tool) uses GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to produce data that is spatially located (valid latitude/longitude). The purpose of GCAT is to provide a convenient highway safety crash analysis tool for ODOT, MPOs and county engineers.
The crash data provided by GCAT is not official and has been provided by the Ohio Department of Public Safety and modified by ODOT for engineering and analysis purposes ONLY. Original crash data reports can be obtained from the law enforcement agency handling the crash or Public Safety's Ohio Traffic Safety Office Crash Data site.
Training is currently being conducted for GCAT. For access to these trainings, please click here. For other LTAP training opportunities, please see the LTAP website.
