The content of fire cause investigation is a vital essential work in each fire disaster due to the fire outcome is not only to be the reference as fire prevention but also the significant gist to improve firefighting. At the practice of site fire investigation, most are using notebook to recording describe information as official document, such process is obviously lacking for carrying convenience and recording instantaneity. Meanwhile, after causing of fire, the investigation work utilizes, building information captions to return the original fire scene and identify the ignition point. In traditional, it is using two dimensions floor plans in paper, but that will be limited to provide architectural spaces information, because it usually can't represent the actual appearance of the building. If can use three-dimensional characteristics of building information modeling (BIM) which can assist investigators produced concept of space and visualization. In recent years, smart handheld devices becoming more and more popular, these devices are light and convenience as well as humanity operation interface, compatible with matured software and hardware communications technology. Through the use of smart handheld devices will need to convert the fire disaster investigation evaluation item of the check into electronic form and combined with BIM needs to identify practices on fire disaster, improve paper working to record the fire scene can help fire investigators recording immediately, and increase the fire site situation accuracy, meanwhile can achieve instantaneity and effectively ideal goal.
