    Abstract

    This paper presents AsphaltOpen, a visualization tool for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) paving operations. AsphaltOpen visualizes site-specific GIS data and GPS path tracing of equipments' motions with the HMA's physical properties, such as the cooling of the asphalt layer and its compaction. AsphaltOpen stores all data in a central database to allow the company wide access on previous asphalting operations. AsphaltOpen's interface is based on action research that we conducted with HMA paving operators to ensure the application's usability. AsphaltOpen offers an easy-to-use tool for HMA paving companies to visualize previous asphalting operations. In this way, it opens up new ways for HMA paving contractors to improve and professionalize their paving operations.
