In 1989, the Sverdrup Corporation was hired to perform the Comprehensive Inspection of the Queens-Midtown and Brooklyn-Battery tunnels in New York City. From the onset of the project it was clear that a very large number of records would be collected by a large, multidisciplined field crew. It was imperative to design a unified data collection and retrieval system, which would allow for efficient study, evaluation, cost estimating, budgeting, and management. The paper describes the CADD-Linked Database Program that was developed , the data sorting and graphics program requirements of which virtually dictate a high capacity fast machine. The paper addresses the Following: system requirements; capabilities of the program and further applications.
