The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new method for 3D visualization modeling of road surface. The modeling data are intensive transects of 3D data, which are collected by multifunction road monitoring vehicle. The first step is to establish a method used for dealing with the massive data, converting the data into the needed format for directly using of modeling. Based on further development of the existing road design software, a road surface terrain model is made, realizing the road surface 3D visualization. This model can provide 3D digital information of the road surface, information of the catchment area and scale calculation of its area. It can also provide complete, objective, and accurate 3D digital information for the road surface distortion distress identification, the road surface condition evaluation, road surface science maintenance management, road safety and so on.
