Crash Summary Reports allow users to easily generate custom, sharable summary reports that summarize your custom query.

Crash Summary Reports display the key metrics identified in the Metrics Sidebar of any Query and can be customized to fit the needs of every report. Additionally, users can choose to add any charts from the Chart Builder tab to the bottom of their Crash Summary Report.

Each Crash Summary Report displays the applied filters for the report, as a map of the report area, identifying the Total Crashes, and Fatal Crashes for the report area.

Additionally, the Crash Summary report displays the Metrics from the Metrics Sidebar of the Query, including the raw number of crashes for each attribute from the Metrics Tab. If the Query includes a Geofilter of either a City, County, or Region, the Crash Summary Report will also include a baseline, and overrepresentation value for each attribute, indicating the performance of the filtered area in relation to the County, Region, or State.

Users can also select to include any charts from the Chart Builder tab of their query. This includes any bar, stacked/grouped bar, line, or pie charts (note: Pivot tables are not available for inclusion in Crash Summary reports. You can select to include/exclude charts from the Report Options window, under the Chart Category.
