ODOT Barn Owl
    ODOT Barn Owl
The Ohio DOT seeks to record road condition information tagged with date, time, and location information automatically.  The touchscreen mobile data computer is preprogrammed with ODOT route information and the hyperlink buttons are marked with road condition status labels. 

The inspection crew just touches the appropriate button and the road condition is recorded automatically and stored in a comma delimited ASCII text database.  The data is downloaded at the end of day/route/week into the ODOT digital mapping application and report generator.  The data is recorded more efficiently, is more accurate, and saves the time of someone keypunching the data from worksheets.
