Wan opportunities for distributed construction information

Abstract: The electronic distribution of construction documents such as building codes and standards, product information, technical literature, and research papers using magnetic and optical media is fast becoming commonplace. Wide Area Networks (WAN) and most notably the Internet can provide new opportunities for the distribution of construction information. Generally, this technology is maturing rapidly and access to the Internet is now widely available. As a result, it is now possible to provide new services for the distribution of construction information to researchers, architects, engineers and builders. In the paper we describe the underlying technology and review the opportunities for its employment in research and practice in the construction industry.
