Recently, damaged pavement like potholes in Korea are increasing due to the climate change such as heavy rains and snow, and thus complaints and lawsuits of accidents related to potholes are growing. Many researchers have studied methods to detect potholes and improve survey efficiency and pavement quality through prior investigation and immediate action. With these detecting methods, there is need for developing a classification guideline for supporting decision-making system of porthole repair. The purpose of this study is to develop a guideline of pothole classification for supporting a decision-making system of pothole repair. In this study, first we review the existing criteria.
