The PASER scale is a 1-10 rating system for road conditions. PASER uses visual inspection to evaluate pavement surface conditions. When assessed correctly it can provide a basis for comparing the quality of road segments. The results of the assessments are then compiled into a state wide system known as WISLR (Wisconsin Information System for Local Roads). By utilizing WISLR data that can either be hosted at a county level on Arc Server or here at Ruekert – Mielke we can add it into a GIS system and then display the ratings as an overlay to the Right of Way layer. This could also be connected to a tool used to edit the ratings of each road. That way it can make for a truly dynamic map layer that changes as edits are made. Also since the WISLR data could be housed here in an SDE database the data can be edited at any time thus updating the map layer instantly. There are many different possibilities to manipulate this data once it is on a GIS site. Feel free to get in touch with us if you have an interest in adding WISLR data to your GIS site.
The ratings for the PASER are as follows:
