  author={Brian N. Hilton and Thomas A. Horan and Benjamin L. Schooley},
Communicating public health issues related to rural and urban road transportation safety is a challenging task. The approach to this task was to utilize an action-design research methodology to design and evaluate several innovative GIS-mashups that visually communicate traffic fatality information from the national to the local level. These web-based mashups ( integrate a range of spatial data regarding motor vehicle crashes, transportation policy legislation, and driver…
