Evaluating the long-term performance of pavements thermally imaged during construction: phase 1: developing spatial tools for location identification: final report

This research effort was to investigate whether spatial locating equipment or global positioning system (GPS) equipment mounted on Connecticut Department of Transportation ARAN vans could be used to locate areas of distressed pavement. It was desired to determine the repeatability and accuracy of the GPS equipment and its usefulness as a monitoring tool for the progression of distressed areas on roadways throughout Connecticut. Several attempts were made to empirically make these determinations. If the process was in fact accurate and repeatable, it would be useful in conjunction with the downward, frontward and side facing images the ARAN Vehicle collects as a monitoring process, partially negating the need for physical monitoring of selected areas of distress.
