Identification of high risk zones is important to develop and implement strategies to enhance pedestrian safety. While the analysis of motor vehicle related crashes has seen the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), pedestrian related safety analyses have not taken as much advantage of the capabilities afforded by GIS programs. The objectives of this research are to present a methodology to identify and rank high pedestrian crash zones, and to introduce a GIS based tool based on the methodology. Capabilities of the tool include the following: identify spatial concentration patterns, select high pedestrian crash zones, extract crash and demographic characteristics ...
