Notes

CPU and memory requirements vary by operating system. For Microsoft operating systems, the minimum requirements recommended for the selected operating system will be sufficient to support Safety Analyst in a minimum (client-only) configuration.

Safety Analyst is limited to 1 GB on 32-bit systems. For large data sets (in excess of 70,000 sites or 1 million crash records), a 64-bit operating system with 2 GB or more of memory may be required to perform data management, or to perform single network screening analysis on all sites in the data set.

Safety Analyst is implemented in the Java programming language. It will run on any platform with Version 6 Java runtime environment (JRE). The Version 6 32-bit JRE is packaged with the Safety Analyst installers. A separate Version 6 64-bit JRE is also available.

Although not officially supported, Safety Analyst may function on operating systems that are no longer supported by Microsoft, e.g., Windows 2000 Professional.

Data storage requirements depend on the size of the inventory, traffic, and crash data. For example, a near-production data set of 25,000 roadway segments, 46,000 intersections, 1.4 million crashes, and 9 years of traffic data requires less than 1.5 GB of disk space for a local (Apache Derby) database.
