Mobile information processing in architecture and building by Alexander Koutamanis (Delft University of Technology)
This book outlines the applications of mobile devices such as smartphones and PDAs to architecture and building. It offers an overview of the possibilities and limitations of what is likely to become a major development in their field. The book addresses general use issues as well as specifically architectural applications – sketching, CAD, and project management. There is a critical overview of the reasons why one might use mobile devices for each specific purpose; of the possibilities and limitations of these devices; of the skills and facilities required for using them effectively and efficiently; and of the relation between mobile applications and general computerization in architectural practice (in terms of both technology and organisation).
