Abstract:In this dissertation, an automated methodology for the retrieval, classification, and integration of construction images in AEC/FM model based systems will be presented. Specifically, a combination of techniques from the areas of image processing, computer vision, and content-based image retrieval have been deployed to develop a method that can retrieve related construction site image data from components of a project model. This method is able to automatically classify, store, integrate and retrieve image data files in inter-organizational systems so as to allow their usage in project management related tasks like project monitoring and productivity measuring systems, processes visualization across time and inventory monitoring as well as evidence retrieval for litigation and other purposes.
