GPS/GIS Inspection and Analysis Tools for Highway ConstructionAuthor/Presenter: Sobanjo, John O.
This study investigated the application of modern technologies to highway construction inspection. A pilot roadway construction project was utilized to demonstrate some of the methodologies developed during the study. A review and brief analysis of contract documents indicated that the GPS could be used to locate and measure over 90% of the FDOT’s approximately 4,500 standard pay items (English unite) during the construction process. For the pilot project, a few items were measured in the direct pay item units.
