IHSDM 2011 Release Web Conference
An October 19, 2011 web conference was held on the new IHSDM 2011 Release. A recording of the web conference is available.
An overview of IHSDM was provided, with a focus on the major enhancements/additions, including:
- A Crash Prediction Module (CPM) Calibration Utility, which was added to the IHSDM Administration Tool (Admin Tool) to assist agencies in implementing the calibration procedures described in the Appendix to Part C (Predictive Methods) of AASHTO's Highway Safety Manual (HSM). The CPM provides crash prediction methodologies for two-lane rural highways, multilane rural highways and urban/suburban arterials, and is intended to be a faithful software implementation of HSM Part C.
- A redesigned Intersection Editor, which now functions like the IHSDM Highway Editor (i.e., a navigation tree-based structure is used to organize intersection data, and different data views are offered).
- Enhanced Help/Documentation
- An expanded Tutorial: Lesson 11 (CPM Calibration) was added, which provides step-by-step instructions and hands-on exercises related to the calibration utility.
