Abstract

This paper presents a computer-aided construction management system that has been developed which combines a knowledge-based Computer-Aided Design (CAD) system, a data-base construction estimating, planning, monitoring, updating, and payments determination techniques, and a stereometric close- range photogrammetric technology for updating and inspecting surface measurements progress. The theme is to automate quantity take-off and payment estimation processes before and during construction through linking design data to construction plans. The system is a step toward automation of construction management procedures and of monitoring the geometry of engineering construction. 1 Introduction Computer vision technology, using stereometric photo
