A condition assessment process was developed to record and rank maintenance issues and environmental impacts related to unpaved roads in California. Esri software provided a unified system to store, analyze, map, and present the data using a Web map. The methodology utilizes linear referencing and hot spot analysis procedures. The system allows for comparisons and prioritization between sites across diverse environments. Data products include maps and reports generated in ArcMap.
