The project aims is to create database system namely "Database of Soil Properties along Ipoh-Lumut Highway". Based on the interviews conducted with JKR Perak and MRCB, database in Malaysia is still new and not applicable in their storing data system. The database is designed to manage large bodies of information. The database of soil properties are needed to help many researchers, engineers and contractors to evaluate the soil condition for road maintenance, ground improvement and neighborhoods development. They could generate this data manually, but it is a long job due to many procedures needs to be followed before they can access the data. The main objective of this project is to organize, store, and retrieve information from Soil Investigation data as efficiently and effectively. The scope of study is along Ipoh Lumut Highway. This project involves the soil profiling about 34 600 m long. The highway consists of 5 major chainages which are Sitiawan, Ayer Tawar, Bota Kanan, Sri Iskandar, Tronoh and Pusing. The most predominant soil between the chainage 300 m until chainage 34 944 m is silty clay with average thickness of 6 m. The engineer needs to be aware with the problem that may occur in the soft clay. The softwares used in this project are Map Info Professional, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Visual Basic. The methods used to gather the information are by conducting an interview, information gathering from the journals, developing the database and generate the soil profile. In conclusions, the database applications will give benefits to all individual and related organization to do their findings or research regarding soil properties and engineering characteristics in Malaysia and the applications of database will be more effective in presenting better information.
