It is important to the periodic collection and analysis of the maintenance and management information of bridges for a more safe and efficient management of the bridges. To enhance the reliability and ease of acquisition of the bridge inspection information that is the basis for a strategy for safe and economic management using the bridge management system (BMS), this study develops a smart phone application for bridge inspection and ensures the actual applicability of the application. The developed application that is linked with the BMS for life-cycle management of bridges is possible to real-time query, modify and transmit of the maintenance-related information, and the application is able to greatly relieve the time and cost for the bridge inspection through the automatic creation of site inspection reports. The proposed method using the application is directly or indirectly expected to be very high effects of value improvement, such as ease of use, improved accuracy, sustainability of information, and future utilization, compared to conventional inspection method.
