Amey, have once again selected to use IBI Group’s RouteMapper video data collection system for the third time in as many years!
The aim of the commission is to populate Amey’s corporate GIS “InFor” with a maintainable spatial inventory of Hereford Council Council’s highway assets obtained from the RouteMapper video. Total Length collected was 3,210 of driven lane km comprising of single lane one/two carriageway sections. The survey was completed within 15 working days by our highly effective data collection team. Record time!
Amey are currently utilising our flagship software; RouteMapper Version 4.0 desktop browser to view, digitise and export highway related assets in a highly effective and efficient manner with minimal effort, enabling the Council’s Transport Asset Management Plan (TAMP) objectives to be achieved, which are to help guide the progress and prioritisation of works on the network
The RouteMapper team was commissioned by the Al Ain municipality to conduct a comprehensive 200km survey of their main transportation corridor. Al Ain is becoming a busy city with commercial and tourist traffic increasing annually, this increase will place greater demands on existing and future transportation infrastructure.
The larger project aims to address the transportation efficiencies through these corridors, covering their physical characteristics, traffic circulation and management, public transportation and urban planning. This study will provide a comprehensive solution for transportation. Critical issues and the functional improvements will be identified as the work involves a multi-disciplinary approach including, travel demand forecasting, simulation modelling, traffic circulation and parking, ITS applications and Geometric design.
RouteMapper will primarily be used to identify and locate traffic and transportation signage, ITS and communications equipment on the Roadside. This will allow the engineers and designers the ability to visualize the current network, and to plan future equipment location. The software tools allow the user to take measurements, record features and faults, and overlay engineering data to fully record the current status of the roads throughout the corridors.
RoadLink is the DBFO responsible for running the A69. They have recently commissioned a RouteMapper survey on the 127km road network.
The A69 provides an important link in the strategic road network, linking the industrial areas of North East England and Teesside, with the North West of England, the West of Scotland and, via the West coast ports, with Ireland. It also provides a route to the Lake District for holiday traffic. The route has been designated a part of the Trans European Road Network.
The aim of the survey is to provide RoadLink with a clear, unequivocal visual record of the current state of the managed network in terms of both pavement surface and general highway asset condition.
Herefordshire County Council have commissioned a RouteMapper survey to cover the bulk of their road network. All A roads, B roads and C roads throughout the county are to be covered along with a selection of the unclassified network. The total for this survey amounts to approximately 3200km.
The aim of the commission is to populate the Council’s Pavement Management System (PMS) with a maintainable inventory of highway related assets obtained from the video. This will enable the Council’s Transport Asset Management Plan (TAMP) objectives to be achieved in this area, helping guide the progress and prioritisation of works on the networkThe desktop browser will be used to complete a full inventory of roadside assets and provide a carraigeway condition assessment.
Aspire, one of the defence contractors, has used RouteMapper to survey 6 of the Military bases they are involved with.
Security was very tight and we were very limited in the areas we were allowed to survey in, but we have managed to successfully record excellent data.
The data will be used to create an asset register for the Ministry of Defences property register.
The RouteMapper team will once again be exhibiting at Road Expo Scotland. We will be displaying our RouteMapper Video Surveying system along with our (ITS) Intelligent Transportation Systems Division. Our ITS team will be on hand for local and national government queries. Both RouteMapper and ITS are crucial elements in enabling our existing road networks to become more efficiently managed. By using spatially encoded video and traffic management systems to reduce operating costs, improve safety and maximise the capacity of existing network infrastructure.

RouteMappper is being used as a signage tool in the upcoming Vancouver Winter Olympics Games in 2010.
The RouteMapper acquisition system is being used to capture data throughout the Vancouver area, specifically along the key routes within the Olympic catchment area . These routes will be surveyed in order to get a better understanding of the current network and capacity.
The RouteMapper desktop software is being used as a design tool for sighting all Olympic specific signage, i.e. identifying routes to the various events, accomodation and parking etc. Once the digitising has finished, all proposed signs will be placed at the necessary locations.
The Ministry of Transport in Ontario, Canada has commissioned IBI Group to provide a large survey within the North East Kings Highways region of Ontario.
Over 5000km of roads will be surveyed, including the greater urban areas of Barrie, North Bay, Sudbury, Sault-Ste-Marie and Timmins. The main purpose of the survey is to create an asset inventory of highway items including:
Further to this, the IMU data will used in conjunction with exisiting design drawings to produce a geometric profile of the highways surveyed.
Members of the UK team are out in our Toronto office to upgrade the current Canadian system to be the same as the UK version, capable of running 6 cameras at upwards of 7-10 frames per second.
The RouteMapper team willl be demonstrating at the Developments in Pavement Assessment 2009 conference at Austin Court in Birmgingham on July 14th.
The ninth Developments in Pavement Assessment conference sees a return to the event’s original focus – getting the data and making the best use of it.
The conference remains unique on the highways calendar as the place to learn about policy, best practice and developments in technical surveys and pavement management. This year’s topics range from texture surveys, assessment of innovative new asphalts, novel approaches to selecting schemes, the traffic speed deflectometer, utility detection and the latest developments in road scanning technology.
