Search function

To select a location on the map,  you can type the road, LGA, or location of interest by typing it directly into the search bar. Alternatively, you can manually scroll and zoom on the map to find points of interest.

Brakepoint details where violent g-forces are occurring across the network in aggregate, allowing the user to obtain an insight on where the driver experiences increased g-forces, and how driver behaviour changes in relation to infrastructure around them. On the map, green dots indicate free flowing traffic conditions whereas red dots indicate 85th percentile g-force violence.

Hovering over data points will cause a dialogue box to appear in the top right-hand side of the map. This outlines the speed and G-force reading of the data-point.

Selecting a road

To select a road, click the [+] button located underneath the search bar. This will open a the Road Selection Panel. Click the Selected Routes [+] button located in the Road Selection Panel. This will allow you to select roads on the map.

To make a selection on the map, click once on the road of interest to set an origin point. To make more complex selections (i.e., emulating a trip with turns), you can make a series of single clicks, and then double clicking when you've finalised your selection. Make sure your selection takes into account the direction of traffic you are trying to analyse.

If you make a mistake, you can cancel a selection in the Road Selection Panel by clicking the [x] next to the corresponding road you wish to delete. The road names and map arrows are colour-coded for ease.
