AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - 2014 will bring new software to the Traffic Division of the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said the new software is called Aras 360 and it cut the time it takes to map out a fatal collision in half.
Right now, deputies work with a 2D system. It maps out a crash site by points, taken by officers on the scene. Points refer to where things happened, such as where the car stopped or where debri landed.
Officers then take those points and plug them into a computer, which generates a map of the crash scene. But officials said documenting the scene with the 2D system can take as long as six to seven hours, because of the number of points they have to document.
