VDOT seeks a GIS Oracle Analyst/Developer to support the Pavement Management System and Pavement Maintenance Scheduling System. Write programs, user interfaces, menus, macro-level commands, perform complex spatial analyses, produce customized reports.
The Information Technology Division meets VDOT's critical business needs by improving agency responsiveness, effectiveness and efficiency, through innovative research, defined architectures, planning, and optimal use of technology.
VDOT uses a Pavement Management System (PMS) and a Pavement Maintenance Scheduling System (PMSS) to guide one of VDOT's most significant investment areas; the management of nearly 126,000 lane miles of VDOT-maintained roads and highways. These systems support the collection and analysis of pavement condition data and provide an integrated method for annually scheduling the required maintenance work.
One of the most challenging aspects of the operation of these systems continues to be the integration of the road network linear referencing system (LRS) from VDOT's enterprise GIS systems with the pavement attribute data in the PMS. The process to of periodically updating the PMS and synchronizing the business data contained within to updated road network locations has required the development of many customized processes. Additionally, integration of PMS with PMSS to improve the process of scheduling pavement maintenance depends on a number of technology solutions which have yet to be developed and implemented.
A major LRS data quality improvement process is currently underway to improve VDOT's source system for managing its network of roads, the Roadway Network System (RNS). A number of enhancements and services must be developed for the PMS to meet the integration with RNS envisioned when it was first deployed in 2010.
VDOT has need of a person who can provide analysis and develop processes to better meet the business needs of the Maintenance Division, the primary user of these systems, the primary goal being to provide better integration between the LRS (from RNS), the condition data in PMS, and scheduling functions in PMSS.
