This project involves the development of a Pavement Management System (PMS) with the help of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
The finished PMS will have access to a data-base of the roads at the University, providing a one-click-link to a host of information on each segment of road. The GIS/PMS has the potential to include pavement performance models which can predict future rehabilitation requirements and suggest maintenence methods.
Budget models can also be included in the system and appropriate funds and personnel can be allocated to the road segment.
A detailed bank of information was attained during the course of this thesis from manual data collection and research into the appropriate departments. The amount of information available to us was dissapointing as the university seemed reluctant to give us a great deal of information on certain topics.
Using the data we did have, a successfully operating PMS was established.
An avenue for expanding upon and extending our system is present and would be a worthwhile pursuit.
