The objective of this research was to evaluate Kansas Department of Transportation's (KDOT's) need for a computerized sign inventory of currently installed highway signs. The following four tasks were considered during the project: 1) needs assessment of computerized sign inventory systems (CSIS); 2) evaluation of existing CSIS; 3) development of a framework for a proposed CSIS for KDOT; and 4) prepare cost estimates. The study concluded that the need for a CSIS exists, however, no suitable existing CSIS was found. Agencies are available who have the expertise and are interested in developing a CSIS to meet KDOT's needs. Cost estimates were not prepared because the software does not exist in the form that can be assigned a cost and most of the hardware already exists within KDOT.
