The longitudinal and transverse road profiles represent the functions of a random variable from a mathematical point of view. It is appropriate to use methods of probability theory and mathematical statistics for their description. The unevenness of the runway surface is the main source of the vehicle's kinematic excitation. This paper describes the statistical properties of the mapped road profiles. It shows a way of categorizing road surface quality based on the power spectral density of unevenness. The interrelationships between the individual points of the profile and the profiles with one another are evaluated by correlation functions.
