Culvert Asset Management Program (CAMP)

  2. Culvert Asset Management Program (CAMP)

CAMP is a statewide Drainage Design Bureau (DDB) initiative to inventory and assess the location, size, and condition of NMDOT’s culvert assets.

The NMDOT Culvert Asset Management Program (CAMP) is an ongoing statewide project. The on-going CAMP data collection follows the CAMP Culvert Inventory Handbook. NMDOT CAMP assessment is an initial end-of-pipe condition inspection.  

CAMP assigns minor drainage structures a CulvertID. Design Directive IDD-2023-05 ensures consistency in the development of all projects to be let by NMDOT in relation to the Departments CAMP. Project Special Provision SP 802-A CAMP Data Deliverable requires a re-assessment of CAMP data as part of Project As-Built package.

CAMP data is intended for planning and/or scoping purposes only. CAMP data should be verified by survey prior to construction. Contact the CAMP team at regarding any difference from CAMP database features compared to material, dimension, and/or number of culverts found in the field.

Milepoint Disclaimer: CAMP points are referenced to a GIS mileage, or milepoint, which is assigned using NMDOT’s GIS Linear Referencing System (LRS). This measurement is referred to as the “milepoint”. Note that the NMDOT LRS Milepoint is the GIS as-driven mileage at that location. Due to re-alignment of a highway over the course of its service life, the location of the mile marker signs may not coincide with the LRS milepoint.


CAMP Schema

Download the latest CAMP schema, unzip, and save the folder titled “To_Collector” to your local server. Connect to this folder which contains “CAMPSchema.gdb” to your GIS map. You can also contact the DDB Drainage Lead, your Project Manager, and/or the NM DOT Project Design Engineer (PDE) to request the latest.

CAMP data collection should follow the CAMP Attribute Rules.

Note: Obtain the latest revision of the Department’s CAMP schema (an *.xml file) prior to the CAMP Data Collection.
