Ever improving smart phones and mobile computing technologies provide engineers unprecedented opportunities to innovate the existing processes of construction projects. Researchers in the construction industry tried to use mobile computing technologies for enhancing the management process of construction project on site. This study aims to present a location-based construction site management system using a mobile computing platform. The system was developed using iPhone SDK (Software Development Kit) from Apple Inc. Task information provided in the system was easily associated with the corresponding location information. This unique feature enabled the construction engineers to easily understand where the tasks and problems were. The communication capability of mobile devices through construction drawing presentation also offered effective information exchange among construction participants. The mobile system operated on smart phone is expected to assist construction engineers in achieving real-time access to customized, location-based construction information.
