Road data management system

Road management means “building new roads and improving/maintaining/repairing existing roads in order to achieve the original purpose of use as facilities for general traffic,” and “preventing, removing, and regulating obstacles that may interfere with the purpose of use of roads.” To achieve these goals, road managers carry out a wide variety of tasks, including managing boundary data, roadside structures, and road-related facilities, as well as road registers. Since the volume of data involved is huge, many problems can occur, such as increases in the number of data organization tasks, the scattering of data, and increases in data search time and data storage space.

The Tao road data management system is a package software program that offers a full suite of functions, and was developed in order to assist road managers and improve the efficiency and sophistication of their operations. It is based on a GIS and can centrally manage text data, numeric attributes (registers), and image data (assessment maps, construction maps, etc.).
