This presentation is on the Ohio Department of Transportation District 2ís research of an efficient means of collecting assets and streamlining ODOTís business processes through the emerging spatially aware imaging technologies. This presentation will be covering the districts efforts to enhance its services and present its results from the ODOT wide pilot which began on July 20th in District 2. We will cover the integration of spatially aware mobile video with the state-of-the-art pavement sensors into one mobile solution that enables ODOT to operate more efficiently and enhance its services to its customers. Through the use of spatially enabled Imagery, the district will be able to efficiently extract its roadway assets and in effect give everyone a virtual GPS unit on their desktop. By using this tool ODOT will be able to reduce the amount of time spent collecting data and increase savings by eliminating unneeded passes on the highway, reducing equipment needs and more efficient operations.
