    Collection, organization and presentation of existing conditions information for facades on large or complex buildings is a complicated and time-consuming task. In addition, analysis of the output can be difficult to interpret due to the large number of data points collected. This paper discusses various methods of collecting and presenting information derived from façade inspections in an effort to increase understanding between all parties involved in a façade restoration project.
