Pavement Management System (PMS) is defined as set of tools or methods that can support decision makers in finding the optimum strategies for providing, evaluating, and maintaining pavement condition in acceptable level. The Iowa Pavement Management Program (IPMP) provides information about Iowa highways such as distress data and maintenance activates. One of the most factors that affect pavement performance is weather factors (temperature, freeze-thaw cycles, and rainfall). The historical climate data was obtained from Iowa Environmental Mesonet (IEM) for counties in the state of Iowa. The pavement condition and climate data can be integrated for pavement performance modeling. The Geographic Information System (GIS) is identified as an effective tool for data integration. The primary goal of this paper is to utilize the GIS tools to integrate pavement conditions and climate data for improving Iowa PMS.
