Spatial data has become an increasingly important tool in geotechnical engineering, allowing for managing and analyzing large amounts of spatial data. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in developing applications that can be accessed by geotechnical engineers from anywhere with an internet connection. This thesis provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of the art in transportation earth structure management. It also highlights the potential benefits of these applications for geotechnical engineers, including open-source applications, database management, and user interface design. It identifies areas for future research and development. The research also discusses the various types of geospatial data that can be used in these applications, such as infrastructure data. Several case studies are presented to illustrate the range of applications for geospatial web applications in transportation earth structure management. These include site selection for new construction projects and analysis of the performance of the assets. This research also highlights the advantages and limitations of these applications, including their potential to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of geotechnical assets and some of the challenges associated with data management and data sharing.
