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.
