Leveraging Technology Investments Integration of GPS, GIS, and Maintenance Management

Working together with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT), the objective of this pilot project was to develop an application to perform the following: (1) Track highway maintenance needs; (2) Compare those needs to current funding to illustrate how much work can be done in budget; and (3) Display this information in a geographical information system. The types of work items to be tracked were decided based on input from NDDOT maintenance managers. These items include: Spot Items, Crack Treatments, Surface Treatments, and Asphalt Overlays. The software will run on a handheld computer and a desktop computer. The hardware will include the handheld computer and a portable global positioning system (GPS) receiver. The software written for the program will run alongside of ESRI ArcGIS geographical information system software.
