This paper discusses the prototype implementation of a
system developed by researchers at the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the
transfer of real-time on-site metrology and
metrology-based data for tracking steel frame
construction. The purpose of the implementation is to
demonstrate the feasibility of automatically
transferring information from the construction site to
project management databases and associated
applications, specifically for the identification and
tracking of structural steel subsystems. The successful
integration and implementation of the on-site field data
collection system with a project information management
system enables a field worker to identify and track a
steel members final position and orientation on the job
