Pictorial documentation in the building industry during the construction process presents a true picture of the project. The photographs are contemporaneous record of what was actually happening at any given time during the course of the project. For small projects keeping documentation doesn’t present a major problem. Difficulties arise with larger projects due to the complex structure and unmanageable data base, where management and organization of current documentation becomes a real challenge. In this case data visualization can be of a great help. In this work we analyzed the general trend of the increasing dominance of visual information in the construction sector in recent years, and identified how this trend is reflected in changes in the documentation of construction projects. Based on the above analysis, we made a plan and developed system to assist in documenting and optimizing the management of photographic documentation generated during the implementation of construction projects. With our system the structure of the photographic documentation is unified, clear, and inexpensive. The developed system is possible to expand and use in other fields as well.
