Abstract
Globalization caused an impact in many developing countries across the world. India is a no
exception. This change shaped scope for development of travel and transportation system, which in turn increased
the traffic congestion and traffic density. It has lead to increase in cause of accidents over the last decade. Traffic
safety is very important element and plays an crucial role in the development of sustainable transportation system.
A GIS based spatial study can provide a complete solution on accidents for governing and management of accident
events as a real-time monitoring system. This paper covers a GIS based approach to road accident governing
system based on spatial and temporal analysis. The general features of the accident have been taken into
consideration like the place of occurrence, type of accident, section of law and time of occurrence. A comparative
analysis is done between and the accident data of the year 2016 and 2017 and the change in trend of accidents is
drawn out. In this study, various GIS techniques have been implemented to identify and predict the accident prone
spots within Visakhapatnam district, Andhra Pradesh. QGIS is used to analyse the accident data and locate the
hotspots in the city.

Key words: Traffic safety, Accident analysis, GIS, RS
