Abstract:

Current practice of providing an "As-built" survey as the completion of work should not be the only mechanism for observation of problems in the construction process. In many cases, survey data is available early in a project, but may not yet have been reconciled against the engineering intent. CIAMS (Construction Information And Management System) is proposed to drive the rapid reconciliation of survey data against engineering design intents through information automation. We will also describe other applications that could benefit from such rapid automated metrology techniques.
