Getting the right information to the right people at the right time has always been a key driver of information management, no more so than when those people are working in a remote field location armed only with a tablet or mobile phone. The traditional interfaces associated with information management assume a level of knowledge of tagging and structure usually absent, given the churn on projects. Even the most informed can still struggle when having to search or navigate for information on a small screen. It is all too easy to give up or, worse, make decisions using incorrect or out of date information. J T Mackley, working with CDE supplier GroupBC, have solved this problem through adopting BIM standards and linking outputs to GIS. By uploading self-authored Google Earth KML files to the CDE, Mackley have enabled Field workers - using the map as the most natural, intuitive interface - to access the latest, approved, published information as simply as possible, via shapes and icons on a map. By driving only appropriate information to workers, through links to pre-defined searches, Mackley can engage users in their BIM journey with minimal training. 'It's all so slick' as one user said.
