ASSET MANAGEMENT OF ROADWAY SIGNS THROUGH ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

Working together with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT), the objective of this project was to develop an application to perform the following: 1) Track highway signs with global positioning systems (GPS); 2) Keep track of the last date a sign was modified; 3) Manage Sign Inventory; 4) Display this information in a geographical information system. The types of forms automated were chosen based on input from NDDOT. These forms include: 1. Sign Maintenance and Installation Record, 2. State Inventory Form, and 3. District Inventory Form. The software will run on a handheld computer and desktop computer. The hardware will include the handheld computer and a portable GPS receiver. The software written for the program will run alongside ESRI ArcGIS geographical information system software.
