New developments in tools for exploitation of stereo aerial photography now enable desktop Windows applications capable of interfacing with existing GIS databases. One area of potential use for these tools is in the area of Highway Access Management especially as it relates to improvement in the process for Highway Driveways. Research is proposed to determine system requirements for using a digital photo imagery archive as the basis for a User Interface to 1) Evaluate permit applications for Highway Driveway Access; 2) Input the proposed permit data into a Permit Information Tracking System; 3) Assess the ¿as built¿ configuration of permitted driveways; 4) Provide automatic linkage to the Roadway Characteristics Inventory database that records information regarding existing access characteristics. The proposed research is based on developing application specific image exploitation techniques in the Windows environment and providing geospecific linkage to existing Roadway Characteristics databases. The proposed research will be conducted in close cooperation with end users within the Florida Department of Transportation to ensure that the solution has practical utility. Technologies to be exploited are: 1) Stereo-pair aerial photography; 2) Distributed database techniques; and 3) Automated linkage of permitting and management database processes.
