Construction plans are complex and include a high amount of relevant data. This information, however, is not standardized and available in a structured format. Therefore, data cannot be analyzed accurately and construction projects cannot be compared on a profound basis.
Construction plans are read and implemented from construction site managers. However, the information on the project progress, its influencing factors and the reasons for delay in the project in only known by the responsible managers on-site.
Applying Computer Vision to construction plans makes information from construction plans available in a structured format, so that information on the specifics of the projects are available more easily such as the amount of floors, square meters and material used.
Together with other information on the project such as project volume, number and name of subcontractors and client, this information can be analyzed and new projects can be evaluated on comparing the project to similar past projects.
