The Machine Survey Pre-processor (MSP) was a software application developed by the Highways Agency to pre-process machine survey data before loading into the Highways Agency’s Pavement Management System (HAPMS). From version 7.0, the functionality of the MSP was extended to include the pre-processing of SCANNER data collected on local roads. However, this MSP is no longer supported or updated and is not suitable for pre-processing SCANNER data generated over the past 2-3 years.
MSP software in general is aimed at carrying out the necessary pre-processing of raw SCANNER data (RCD) to produce the SCANNER HMDIF file required for loading into UKPMS. The MSP software is usually developed to:
Survey Contractors are permitted to use their own facilities to provide the same functionality as the MSP and therefore the decision has been taken, with the agreement of the Highways Agency, to make the MSP source code available to download, subject to certain legal terms and conditions.
