1. A system for assessing turns made by a vehicle, the system comprising:

  • a computer readable media; and

    one or more processors executing instructions stored on the computer readable media that when executed cause the processor to;

    receive telematics data indicative of a historical travel path from a telematics device associated with a vehicle;

    identify, based at least in part on the telematics data, one or more turns executed by the vehicle each turn comprising instances in which the vehicle changes from traveling in a first direction to traveling in a second direction;

    determine for each of the identified one or more turns a turn segment comprising;

    a beginning turn point comprising a telematics data point occurring before successive telematics data points;

    an ending turn point comprising a telematics data point occurring after the successive telematics data points; and

    one or more turn segment attributes comprising one or more of a time elapsed between the beginning turn point and the ending turn point, and a turn type, wherein the turn type is determined by;

    identifying, based at least in part on the telematics data, a location of the turn segment; and

    comparing the location of the turn segment against map data to identify one or more roads located at the location of the turn segment;

    receive a user request for analysis of turns corresponding to a determined turn type;

    identify those turn segments identified as one of the determined turn types; and

    generate a graphical display comprising a map illustrating the location of the identified turn segments and displaying one or more of the turn segment attributes of the identified turn segments.
