This research project attempts to ease the data collection burden of the North Dakota Department of Transportation's (NDDOT) maintenance manager, while increasing and improving pavement condition information. The pilot project used handheld computer and global positioning system (GPS) technology to capture pavement condition and location data. This data collection effort was designed to be assimilated into current roadway management operations. This technology potentially can reduce field work of the maintenance manager.
