Abstract: Construction industries perform different set of activities requires execution as per prepare scheduling. However, scheduling software’s such as PRIMAVERA, MS project etc., could not provide 3 dimensional spatial aspects of information of construction. In this regard, Geographical information system could overcome this limitation of the scheduling software’s and produced 3D visualization of 3D model. This system utilizes 2D drawings from AutoCAD and schedules prepared in PRIMAVERA software in order to generate 3D visualization of the construction project. The objective of the study is to integrate 3D information and scheduling and visualization of construction projects of residential building in Vuyyuru town, Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh. Thus created GIS based 4D (x, y, z and time) model useful for optimization, decision making and temporal monitoring of the workflow of the project at the site as well as in detecting logical errors that occur in project schedule.
