This webapp was put together as apart of a capstone project for Deloitte AAM. The project involved utilizing analytics and machine learning to model fatal auto accident propensity. This webapp aims to provide insight on fatal accident densities by interfacing with public Google API's combined with the FARS dataset.

How It Works
- The Navigation app queries the Google Directions API to obtain the 1-3 recommended routes from point A to point B; the 10-Mile Radius app calculates the latitude and longitude bounds on the map after centering it on the entered location
- With the recommended routes, the FARS dataset of fatal auto accidents is processed to identify accidents that occurred along each route that satisfy any time of day or weather filters
- The applicable accidents are plotted along the navigation routes or in the 10-mile bounding box by utilizing the Google Heatmap Layer API.
- Data source is the government-provided FARS data set of fatal auto accidents released each year. Data includes attributes of accidents and vehicles and people involved. (http://www.nhtsa.gov/FARS)
