The Center continues to improve asset management techniques and cost savings for federal and state transportation agencies through the development of new procedures and methods for data integration, pavement analysis and reporting. As a result of research at CGIS, pavement design engineers at Georgia DOT are now able to effectively conduct spatial data queries, visualization, analysis, and reporting for the State's 18,000-centerline-mile highway network by using a customized collection system that includes a state of the art GPS-enabled handheld system, a centralized database, and GIS-based web application. In a federally funded pilot project, CGIS researchers have integrated advanced laser technology, image processing algorithms, and GPS/GIS technologies into an intelligent sensing system used to collect asset data that is user friendly, reliable, and most importantly, efficient. This intelligent sensing system may soon become a standard in transportation asset management across the nation.
