This paper reviews a computerised system ISIS (Interactive Survey Information System) which could be used for the assessment or accreditation of those that inspect buildings. In the system developed by the author, the user is presented with colour images of a building and is able to inspect and interact with any or all of these pictures at will. By using navigation tools, realistic travel in many directions through and around the building is possible. Tests to aid inspection and diagnosis can be undertaken by using normal surveying tools available from the survey menu. The way the survey is undertaken, the order and number of images examined and where and when tools have been used, is recorded for later audit analysis.
