Image retrieval is a field of general Computer Aided Information Retrieval. It is of great i.ntcrcst to us from two points of view. Not only iu itself, but also as a particularly sensitive application area and testbed of various models and techniques which, although applicable in other field& became much more spectacular in this one. It is especially clear(More)
The issue of multiple views coordination became more and more challenging in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) field since the apparition and the increasing success of 4D/nD CAD. In order to adapt visualization to user's business requirements in 4D-supported collaborative tools, this paper propose a method to design coordinated multiple(More)
In this paper, we report on a business case in the construction sector where we have designed and prototyped an innovative Web-based distributed document management application. It supports various exchange and sharing of information services between the different stakeholders involved in a construction project. The development of the application is based(More)
Cooperation between actors in design and construction activities in architecture is an essential stake nowadays. In professional practices the actors involved in construction projects use numerous tools. The project is unique but the " views " that actors manipulate are various and sometimes fundamentally different. Their common characteristic is that they(More)
Nowadays, new tools appear to assist the cooperative activities of design and realisation. These tools have to integrate the context to better answer to the users' needs. Taking into account the context allows to define relevant information and functionalities for the user, or to suggest adapted interfaces for specific needs. This article describes a model(More)
This article describes an approach to model user views in service-oriented groupware systems in order to support the adaptation of views in collaborative projects environments. The issue is to adapt the visualization to the users' business requirements according to their usages. We rely on research works in Human-Computer Interaction, Information(More)
