NEW JERSEY ADOPTS DIGITAL SIGN MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The article describes how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) facilitate the flow and retrieval of data on all regulatory, warning and guide signs, and streamline the management of sign resources. New Jersey is developing a new GIS database that will include information on all 140,000 signs on the state's highway system. A GIS can create links between topological features on existing maps and a database containing attributes, or information about those features. To ensure that information about existing signs is accurate, sophisticated field data collection equipment is being employed, including still-frame digital video cameras and pen-based hand-held computers.
