Integrated SiteManager and Pavement Analyst Database on an Online Platform

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) maintains several databases to record materials, construction, and performance information for roadway projects: materials and test records in the SiteManager database; construction related information in TxDOT Connect or Design and Constructions Information System; and performance measures in the Pavement Analyst database. Data from these databases has been compiled in a recent project to identify relationships between the materials and construction records and observed long-term performance of hot mix asphalt pavements. The objective of this project is to implement this work through a visualization and analysis tool via a commercially available software and that can be accessed in near real time by TxDOT on an ongoing basis. The research team will utilize Tableau Prep Builder to integrate data from all data sources and develop the visualization and identification interface on Tableau Packaged Workbook. In addition to the aforementioned databases, maintenance history from Compass and geographic information system (GIS) information from the TxDOT Open Portal to locate and map all projects will be incorporated. A text and visual guide on how to use the Tableau interface will be developed, and an online workshop will be held to demonstrate the functionality of the interface to TxDOT’s Divisions and Districts. Such a tool will allow TxDOT to investigate all construction and maintenance projects performed on a pavement section and understand the effect of materials, design and construction processes on the long-term pavement performance.
