The City of Indio is located in the southern California desert region just outside of Palm Springs. Michael Baker International, Inc. (Michael Baker) partnered with Indio to provide Mobile LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) mapping and Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS) data collection services in support of the City’s 5-year pavement management plan and to augment the City's ongoing public works asset management systems.
The mobile LiDAR data, LCMS pavement surface condition data, and 360° high-resolution spherical digital imagery data collection and processing was done for approximately 450 lane miles (222 centerline miles) of the City-owned transportation network comprised of high volume major and minor arterials, major and minor collectors, as well as residential (neighborhood-level) streets and alleyways.
The primary objective of the project was to utilize the massive amount of feature-rich geospatial data to develop the City’s pavement management system and corresponding 5-year pavement prioritization plan, and to perform a comprehensive physical asset inventory of the City’s curb ramps, sidewalks, and traffic sign assets. The collection of the curb ramps and sidewalk data was intended to provide the City with a current inventory of physical infrastructure assets that supported their ongoing ADA compliance activities.
This presentation will demonstrate the complex data collection and data processing methods used for both the pavement condition assessment and the asset data that was captured using Mobile LiDAR and Video Image technology. The presentation will also illustrate how the data was integrated into the City's GIS for a wide range of additional uses, including capital improvement planning and programming, and funding requests. ArcGIS Online will be used to publish map services and map apps that make the data come to life for a wide range of City staff and constituents.
