HMDIF Conversion Software

The UKPMS Conversion Software allows exports from various Machine Survey processing systems, including SKID (or SCRIM) and PANDEF (for Deflectograph) to be converted to HMDIF format to be loaded into UKPMS accredited systems.


Version 2.2.0 includes no major changes from the previous version and also allows DVI surveys, collected using the current version of the UKPMS Rules & Parameters to be converted to a CVI-equivalent survey for use in producing Best Value Performance Indicators.


Installation Instructions:


Step 1 – Install Microsoft Data Access Components


(Users of Windows 2000 and Windows XP should skip this step).


If you intend running the software under versions of Windows other than Windows 2000 and Windows XP, prior to installing the software you should download and install mdac_typ.exe, which will install the Microsoft Data Access Components that are required by the Conversion Software.


Double-click mdac_typ.exe below and follow the instructions on the screen.


Step 2 – Install the HMDIF Conversion Software Version 2.2.0


Download the HMDIF Conversion Software Version 2.2.0.


Extract the file using Winzip, double-click the file setup.exe and follow the instructions on the screen.


Important Notes on Using the Conversion Software to Convert DVI Surveys to CVI-Equivalent Surveys


The Conversion Software allows DCI survey data to be converted to CVI-equivalent data for use in the production of Best Value Performance Indicators.


Only DVI data that conforms to the current version of the UKPMS Rules & Parameters can be converted in this way.  The simplest way to tell whether you DVI data has been collected using this version of the Rules & Parameters is to examine a DVI HMDIF file using a text editor.


If occurrences of the BCRW (Wheel Track Cracking) defect have two ‘OBVAL’ records (one for each parameter) rather than a single record, then they have been collected in accordance with version RP5.01 or later of the Rules & Parameters.  The following is an extract from a DVI HMDIF:
