A research database for new federal courthouses

CourtsWeb is the research data­base for new fed­eral cour­t­houses devel­oped by Geor­gia Tech Research Insti­tute through a GSA — U.S. Courts joint ven­ture. The appli­ca­tion is built upon a data­base with exten­sive doc­u­men­ta­tion of recent cour­t­houses includ­ing text, spread­sheets, pho­tos, panoramic images, dia­grams, draw­ings, and inter­ac­tive plans.

There are pow­er­ful oper­a­tions for the descrip­tion and eval­u­a­tion of exist­ing cour­t­houses as well as new tools for a gen­er­a­tive descrip­tion of the typo­log­i­cal fea­tures of cour­t­house design.

Thomas Grasl worked on the project as a con­sul­tant to the Geor­gia Insti­tute of Technology.
