Abstract:

The trend in the development of most sophisticated Pavement Information and Management Systems (PIMS) is to them atically display the results of the analyses in G IS environment. How ever, for a developing country such as Nigeria, there is always the challenge of lack of mastery and skill necessary to develop and maintain a PIMS based on GIS.The thrust of the research work was to develop thematic displays for a simplified PIMS, based partly on ArcGIS, and MATLAB. Paper map of the federal road network for Nigeria was digitized in ArcGIS environment and transferred to MATLAB environment. The resulting database (of the digitized road map) was merged with the parent database of the PIMS in M icrosoft Access, such that, the results of all the various analyses performed within the MATLAB environment are also displayed thematically in MATLAB.
