The Korean Highway Agency manages the current status of roads and related facilities as a form of CAD drawings or databases (DBs) to achieve systematic road management. Although the current status of roads is modified from time to time, there is a limitation on rapid update on road information due to the limited budget. Therefore, it is necessary to assign financial resources by determining priority on target areas requiring a budget to perform the road DB update effectively within a given budget. To achieve this objective, this study calculated weights of evaluation criteria to determine priorities using an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and presented a methodology that can determine priority areas by employing the calculated weight factor with a GIS method. Through the study, it was found that an aspect of DB utilization by road manager was more important than the safety aspect of roads to develop a road DB.
