A web-based application tool, the Rural Road Planning and Prioritisation Model (RPPM), has been developed for Bangladesh. RPPM has some limitations in its mapping feature. The main purpose of this prototype illustration study is to customise RPPM to illustrate that the information in the road and GIS databases can be effectively used to show the spatial features and socio-economic facilities along a road. This study has produced a tool as part of RPPM for the prototype mapping illustration of selected roads with spatial socio-economic features.
