We have analysed all the crash data to identify places where there are many crashes within close proximity.
In fact each hotspot represents the crashes within a 25 m radius circle.
Most hotspots are intersections but there are also dangerous bends and so on.
For each hotspot we identify further information about it such as trends, primary causes, and provide charts of this.
Yes, you can see the hotspot map and information on Android phones and tablets.
Its available from the Play Store under the name "Crash NZ".
The Apple version will be coming out shortly.
At a later time we will include the crashes map also.
On either the crashes or hotspot map, you can bring up the Search panel.
After you have made selections and got the results you want you can press the Get Link button.
This generates a tiny url which copies all your settings.
When someone opens the tiny url, they should see what you see.
The data is currently only sourced from the NZTA who compile it from police reports.
There is some under reporting of severe injuries, and very significant under-reporting of minor and non injury crashes.
The page attempts to center the map on your current location in order to show you relevant locations and crash information.
Its quite OK to refuse location, or to not be able to provide it, in which case the map will be centered on Auckland.
