To improve the availability of reliable information on an arbitrary location in or outside a construction project and to exchange information faster, more efficient and in an interactive way HBG developed the UPIA-device. With this handheld device location based information can be generated on site and can be used interactive by reliable and interactive access to a central database on a distant location. As a tool for quality monitoring the application is tested successfully at complex building projects.
