...Taunya Kidd.

I am a Traffic Safety Analyst for the Arkansas Department of Transportation.

We  have recently created a query tool that allows stakeholders to explore crash data and perform their own analysis. We are developing a collection of gis based web applications and  #operational dashboards for various areas of emphasis that will be curated and published as a #storymap to make the crash data and query tools available to the public.

My background is in Emergency Management, but I shifted my focus to GIS after learning of ESRI products and developing maps and applications for several state and national emergencies. My underlying interest is simply finding ways to improve processes and systems. GIS products are often the first and best solution to streamlining workflows, increasing efficiency, and ensuring quality. ESRI offers a tremendous amount of training and support for those, like me, that don’t have a formal education in a related field.

ONE of my favorite places: 35.5131603,-91.9968351

Arkansas is a beautiful state, full of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. It has been a long, hot summer and one of my favorite places to visit is the JFK Park on the Little Red River. The  water is ice cold and the trout are plentiful.

Welcome, that location would have been a nice to know 2 years ago when you guys hosted GIS-T. 

I would be interested in seeing what you guys are creating. While I spend most my time with LRS data, I have been spending some time in in traffic safety space so we can better serve that group. 

Another space to watch is Roads and Highways User Group (RHUG)
