Pavement Rating Software
The current version of VisRate 5.0.0 was released for use with GISMo. VisRate 4.X reached end-of-life on 2/11/2022, and is no longer supported. VisRate is a program for collecting visual pavement distress data. VisRate software calculates distresses using the Option A method from the Pavement Surface Condition Field Rating Manual for Asphalt Pavements.
Distresses for user-defined segments of pavement are recorded and saved in a local database. Users download GISMo data into VisRate from within VisRate and use the data for conducting pavement ratings. Users can connect a laptop computer with a vehicle's Digital Measurement Instrument (DMI). The laptop synchronizes with and operates a Nite Star NS - 60 DMI as the vehicle moves down the road.
A DMI is not required to operate VisRate software.
