Starting July 1st, 2006 a new form is being used by all police officers in Colorado. As I understand it, use of this form is required - reports submitted to the Department of Revenue on old forms will be rejected.
The form is described in this PDF document: ColoradoDR2447.pdf
This new form is similar, but in some critical ways different from the form in use today. Specifically, a couple of fields have been added, a couple removed, but most importantly: The values in many of the fields have changed! Unfortunately, rather than adding the new values to the end of the list, new values have been inserted into the middle of the list. So a table that used to look like this:
may now look like this:
(this example is contrived, we don't use vehicle color in our system)
This means that when a yellow car is involved in a crash, the officer will now code it as a "2". That "2" will likely be written to the file that Intersection Magic imports. Intersection Magic will see that "2" and interpret it as a green car.
The fields which are affected by re-mapping like this are: Harmful Event, Road Description, Road Condition, Weather, Vehicle (type), Vehicle Movement, Most Apparent Contributing Factor.
As you can see, the changes are substantial and will affect any application that uses data from these forms. As a result, you should not import this new data into your existing database. It will result in incorrect data in the program. In theory, this should be all crashes starting with July 1, 2006. In practice, I'm not sure how it will work out with each agency.
