Abstract. The article presents conclusions of a comprehensive analysis of pilot data collection using four mapping methods. To validate mapping methods and procedures, we selected three ten-kilometer sections of the first class roads with different geomorphological, vegetative and transportation properties. All sections were measured by aerial photogrammetry using GSD = 4 cm, mobile laser scanning equipment linked with cameras, by geodetic surveying methods, and one section was also measured by UAV. The tested methods mapped selected features of vertical and horizontal traffic markings on the first class roads. The traffic marking measuring sets were analyzed from the perspectives of personnel, time, data, costs, and technological and organizational aspects. All the mapping methods were verified as mentioned above starting from work preparation phase, its terrain realization, captured data processing and detailed analysis, concluding with stating the advantages and disadvantages for each mapping method. One of the analysis outputs was proposals to change and refine road administrator’s regulations. The mapping methods were compared with geodetic measurements. Analyses were also carried out in the context of creating digital data in 3D for the realization of BIM (Building Information Modeling) digital data in connection with the concept of the European Parliament and Council Directive 2014/24 / EU on Public Procurement, and Czech Government Decree 682 on the Concept of Implementation of the BIM Method in the Czech Republic of 25 September 2017 and Decree 958 of the Government of the Czech Republic of 2 November 2016 on the importance of BIM for the construction engineering and proposal of further steps to introduce it in the Czech Republic.
