By applying Artificial Intelligence on e.g. panoramic imagery, road defects are detected in an automatic manner. Advantages are the possibility to increase the frequency of mapping road defects, the reproducibility and objectiveness of the classifier. When injecting this data in a GIS environment that contains additional information on e.g. traffic flux, accidents or dominance of certain transport modes, streets can be prioritized. Additional benefits are an increased lifespan of assers, road safety and comfort.
