|== Linked Information ==
|As mentioned, there are a wide variety of information that will be added and linked to a building's record over time.
| * Notes - e.g. phone or news reports recorded as a simple text note.
| * Photos - from publicly submitted photos soon after the event to potentially hundreds as first rescue teams, and later engineers and building inspectors visit.
| * Documents - such as plans converted to pdf, or reports, or correspondence in a word processing format.
| * Assessments - a building will potentially undergo a number of assessments over time (e.g. in Christchurch many buildings had to be reassessed after every m5.0 eathquake which meant 20+ assessments). This will include different types of assessments - some of which will be implemented as assessments in Eden.
| * Status Changes - some of the key information, such as the building state, needs every state change to be recorded. E.g. when a building was marked as 'yellow/restricted access', and when this was later changed to 'red/no access', or 'green/no restriction on access'. These state changes, that are usually triggered by an assessment, need to be recorded.
|It isn't the responsibility for the BIS module to provide all the tools, but rather to integrate and produce an overview from information contained in other Eden applications. Assessment, for example, will be links to the actual assessments in the [[http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BluePrintAssessment|Assessment application]]
