Obtaining crash data from the Arizona ACIS portal

Pete d'OronzioStandard configurations > Arizona (ALISS/ACIS)

The State of Arizona provides access to their crash data through a Citrix (remote desktop) portal. In order to download data, a user must log in to a Citrix remote desktop; access the ACIS website; and initiate a download of the data to your local computer.

Note: This document is provided as-is. Pd’ Programming does not have special knowledge of or direct access to the ACIS system. We have captured the screens below with the assistance of a local agency that does have access. Please follow any instructions provided by the DOT.




 ADOT database changes and the new 2017 ADOT Crash form

adminStandard configurations > Arizona (ALISS/ACIS)

With the redesign of the ADOT crash form some fields were preserved, and others were removed or consolidated. During this process, new lookup values were added to ADOT's database to standardize and accommodate for the changes to the form. ADOT will not be converting old data to match with the new format, some fields and or values could be blank. ADOT's internal database lookup values DO NOT MATCH with the current crash form.

adminCrash Magic Online > Importing

In Texas, crash data is available to agencies through the CRIS data system. By following the steps included here, you can download and unzip data files suitable for import into Crash Magic. You also have the option to FTP the data to our servers rather than using the browser interface. That process is described at the bottom of this article.















 SWITRS crash data is imported incorrectly

adminStandard configurations > California (SWITRS)

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) maintains the crash records that you use as SWITRS data. In January of 1998 they modified the format which had been used for many years. The format was changed to add the century to any dates in the data file. This makes the data y2k compatible. This requires special treatment of SWITRS data by Intersection Magic.
