Free online collision data tool launched
The team behind MASTonline has launched a free online data portal for anyone interested in learning more about road traffic collisions and the people involved in them.
Councils, police forces, and fire and rescue services, have been using the subscription-based MASTonline* since 2009, but now there is a version of the professional platform which anyone can subscribe to free of charge.
‘RSA OpenData’, launched yesterday (29 Sept), provides users with ready-analysed data around casualties, crashes and vehicles from the last five years. It is designed to provide community groups, students, schools, parish councils and the general public with easy access to data about crashes involving their residents, and demographic details of people involved in collisions on local roads.
The new tool features a customisable dashboard with more than 10 filters including severity of injury, date of accident and every road number available. The data is updated annually with official national statistics in order to guarantee ‘confidence, relevance and timeliness’.
*MAST Online has more than 1,000 registered users from across the public sector, as well as third and private sector users. It provides subscribers with national crash data for customised analysis, but also offers unique insights into people involved in crashes with the help of Mosaic Public Sector, the socio-demographic database from Experian.
