About the research

IMAT is analysis software for analyzing location- referenced data collected using Traffic and Criminal Software (TraCS) and Incident Location Tool (ILT) software. IMAT is similar in look and feel to the ILT software, leveraging approximately 75 percent of the same source code libraries. IMAT supports the same-day analysis of incident data collected by law enforcement officers, a central objective of the TraCS project. IMAT supports a collection of simple query tools, allowing a user unfamiliar with SQL to easily filter and chart collected safety and citation data attributes. It is similar in functionality to the Crash Mapping Analysis Tool (CMAT).
