Abstract

See full text

The system, method and program are adapted for collecting images of job-site conditions, and plans and specifications. The images are annotated with attributes that relate to the location, time and trades involved and other aspects of the images. Job site images are collected with a camera connected to a portable data collection device. The data collection device is programmed with image attributes for a particular project. Images are also annotated with attributes gathered by sensors, such as GPS position data, moisture sensor information, and direction information. Images with attached attributes are uploaded to a database server and indexed into a relational database. Images can be flagged and determined to be Images for Resolution which triggers automatic notification to the involved parties and follow up to confirm resolution. Authorized participants can access images in near real time, to make funding, insurance and other judgments about the project. Images are archived for safekeeping and long term storage.
