In this dissertation, the author presents the development details of a multimedia-based highway information system (MMHIS). The system is designed to overcome limitations of existing photo-logging systems. The technologies involved in the MMHIS include: digital video, high- speed video server, ATM networking, relational database management system, and 3D map rendering. The dissertation first presents a database structure design for engineering site data. Data preparations and operations are then discussed. The author describes the process involved in creating a 3D map database and rendering the 3D map.. The report then describes MMHIS query operations. Networking and a video server for the MMHIS is discussed. The MMHIS system structure is described, followed by an analysis of distress recognition in the pavement surface viewer module of the MMHIS. >
