This study presents a visualization system based on a geographic information system (GIS) for planning and monitoring the progress of construction projects that are repetitive due to their geometrical layout. A prototype system was developed and applied to an actual pipeline project to demonstrate the advantages of the proposed approach. The primary advantage of the system is improved visualization of geographical conditions and their impact on the progress rate. Enhanced visual representation of the schedule and work sequence can be achieved by time-lapse simulation. The system also provides a framework for effective communication of schedule, progress, and geographic information among the project participants. Future enhancements to the prototype system are addressed.
