Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 34-11. Geographic Information System Applications in Pavement Management

Highway agencies are collecting an ever-increasing amount of information associated with the nationwide network of highways. The information is in a wide variety of formats such as drawings, pictures, maps, text descriptions, tables, and experience. There is a consequently a demand for efficient tools for managing that information. Geographic Information System (GIS) technology allows the integration of these highway operations by establishing common spatial relationships between geographical objects. The objective of this synthesis is to systematically document the state-of-the-practice of GIS applications in pavement management. This will be done by literature review and survey of the state DOTs.
