What Makes AIMS Unique:
AIMS displays accidents on GIS map with our patented 3-dimensional stacked symbol plot. It plots accidents on GIS map with symbols corresponding to the locations where the accidents occurred. It plots mid-block accidents according to distances or mileposts. If a location has two or more accidents, it stacks the symbols on top of each other, creating a 3-dimensional view. Locations with a higher stack of symbols mean more accidents.
Change In Your Data
We customize AIMS to use and interpret your existing data. You rarely need to change your data structure, format or coding definition. Customizing AIMS to use and interpret your existing data are included in the price. After customization, you will be able to add new data and update/modify/delete data.
You Don't Have To Know GIS To Use AIMS
AIMS is a complete software with friendly user-interfaces. It is designed for people to use it without GIS knowledge. You get what you want by click-and-pick operations. You learn how to plot accidents on map and how to create collision diagrams in a few minutes.
You Don't Need Other Software To Run AIMS
All AIMS needs is Windows(R) and a GIS map of your jurisdiction. We customize AIMS to use your existing GIS map. This customization is included in the price. (If your agency does not have a GIS map, you can buy one or download a free one from the internet*. Having the GIS Map, we will then customize AIMS to use it. This customization is included in the price.)
Multiple GIS Platforms
Powerful Accident Data Management and Analysis Tool
AIMS produces many standard reports to meet your day to day needs. It generates almost unlimited number of reports and statistics, through its powerful query & re-query capabilities, to satisfy your special needs.

*The price of a GIS map for a county (in USA) is a few hundred dollars. You may download a free TIGER(R) file as the GIS map of your jurisdiction. It is available from U.S. Census Bureau or ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc.).
We organize AIMS into different modules. Each module has different features. The AIMS Main Module (Item# A-01) is the heart of the system. You have to order it in order to use other modules. (One exception: You may order the Collision Diagram Non-GIS Module (Item# B-01) as software by itself, without ordering the Main Module.)
