The Crash Magic study is the container for crash data. All reports in the system must reference a study containing a group of crashes for analysis.  There are studies for gathering intersection crashes, milepost crashes, GIS located crashes, etc. The various study types are described in the study types section.


Functionally, the study only contains connection, query and parameter information to gather the crash data.  This distinction means that a report generated Monday will contain different content than a report generated Tuesday if the data has changed between the generation of the two reports.  This is because the report is generated from scratch each time.
