Abstract: One of the challenges facing local government is the management of its infrastructure. An important part of this process is the development of a pavement management systems to protect a city's investment in its roadway system. For medium to large municipalities, considerable effort must be expended to develop the initial roadway segment database information. This paper describes a proposed method for using geographic information systems (GIS) technology to develop the initial roadway segment database. This method can be used to graphically input, revise, and display various attribute information contained in the roadway database. Once created, the database can be utilized in a variety of pavement management systems that are available.
