Abstract

Various trends and requirements of IT-based construction field data collection are highlighted. The advances such as mobile computers, wireless communications, video conferencing, collaboration systems, three-D laser scanning, digital close range photogrammetry, sensor and project application service providers, provided new ways for collecting and managing project information. The information technology (IT) tools can reduce time and enhance quality in collecting construction field data. It was suggested that companies interested in implementing IT within their organization must recognize the nature of new technologies, their lifecycle and ways to integrate their work process with technologies.
