GIS-Based Roadway Construction Planning

Sanghyeok Kang, Jongwon Seo

Roadway construction planning processes involve a large amount of information regarding design, construction methods, quantities, unit costs, and production rates. GIS (Geographic Information System) is a very effective tool for integrating and managing various types of information such as spatial and non-spatial data required for roadway construction planning. This paper proposes a GIS-based system for improving roadway construction planning by integrating design and construction information. The proposed system can also help construction planners make a proper decision in a unique way with its ‘Interactive Planning’ function that supports the space scheduling and activity sequence visualization processes.
