1. A fleet management computer system for providing a fleet management user interface, said fleet management computer system comprising:

  • one or more memory storage areas; and

    one or more processors in communication with said one or more memory storage areas;

    wherein said one or more processors are, collectively, configured to;

    receive operational data comprising vehicle telematics data and service data, said vehicle telematics data generated based at least in part on vehicle sensor output at vehicle telematics devices located on at least one vehicle and being indicative of one or more vehicle dynamics for the at least one vehicle during one or more time periods, and said service data generated based at least in part on user input received by a user device and being indicative of one or more service dynamics for at least one vehicle operator during said one or more time periods;

    generate an operational data set comprising a plurality of contextually interrelated operational data records, wherein each operational data record comprises concurrently captured operational data, and wherein one or more of the operational data records comprise telematics data and one or more of the operational data records comprise service data;

    store the operational data set in the one or more memory storage areas;

    determine, based on said operational data set, a vehicle travel path traveled by said vehicle during said one or more time periods;

    determine, based on said operational data set, one or more operational characteristics of said vehicle dynamics and said service dynamics for said one or more time periods; and

    generate a graphical user interface comprising;

    at least one evaluation results display indicating one or more of said operational characteristics; and

    at least one geographical map showing at least a portion of said vehicle travel path;

    wherein said graphical user interface is configured to enable a user to select one or more geographical areas of said geographical map by drawing a two-dimensional shape on said geographical map; and

    wherein said processors are configured to, in response to said user selection of said one or more geographical areas of said geographical map,identify one or more area trips, wherein the one or more area trips each comprise a portion of the vehicle travel path determined to be located within a user selected geographical area and wherein each area trip begins when the vehicle enters the user selected geographical area and ends when the vehicle subsequently exits the user selected geographical area;

    determine one or more area trip operational characteristics of the one or more area trips; and

    display said area trips and said area trip operational characteristics in said evaluation results display.
