Road & Footpath Data Capture
Talis undertook data capture for approximately 650km of road and 1090km of footpath for Moreland City Council in Victoria. This project was carried out by our team of experienced asset inspectors and included a variety of methods including in-field visual assessment and high-speed data collection. The data collected was used to inform long term works plans and infrastructure valuations.
The roads were visually surveyed in the field by a pavement engineer (with significant road construction and treatment experience) to capture severity and extent of distresses such as cracking, surface defects and deformation. A high speed data capture vehicle was also utilised to record roughness, rutting and surface texture.
Two data capture officers using GPS enabled tablets with customised GIS software walked the entire footpath network to evaluate condition of pre-defined segments and record GPS points of defects such as cracking, trip hazards and crossfall. This method ensured the outcomes were appropriate for both renewal and maintenance planning.
All datasets submitted to Moreland City Council were provided in a format to suit their asset management system, Assetic, and a summary of the project outcomes was presented to Council staff.
