Compass 2012 Data Analysis and Reporting

The Compass Annual Report is issued each year to communicate the condition of Wisconsin's state highway network and to demonstrate accountability for maintenance expenditures. Past efforts of Compass include data analysis and reporting performance and outcomes for signs, pavement, shoulders, roadsides, drainage, traffic, and bridges. Starting from the 2005 Compass report, measures for bridge inspection and maintenance were included, and historic data was transformed from District to Region-levels. In 2006, Compass reports began presenting trends for pavement condition associated with the agency's biennial inspection cycle. In addition, starting from 2006 the Compass report took on a slightly more customer-focus by presenting overall results as a report card and by organizing the measures according to their maintenance objectives such as safety, stewardship, and aesthetics. Starting in 2008, pavement condition has been based on the Pavement Maintenance Management System (PMMS) data.
