Remote Sensing and GIS Based Materials Information Management

Henk Buys

The state’s road pavements are required to perform under increasingly severe conditions with both increasing mass limits and increasing traffic volumes. Hence there is a critical need to locate new economic aggregate sources for future work on highways in the western part of the state such as the Newell and Sturt Highways.

This presentation provides a strategy for the development of materials sources, an overview of the use and integration of various remote sensing methods for identifying potential materials sources, and GIS based data management systems for the management of these sources.
