A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11887268B2) discloses an information display device that includes a tangible recording medium storing a three-dimensional model of a structure and damage information associated with each management section of the structure. The device is equipped with a processor that controls the display of damage information in a list format, allowing users to select and view specific damage details. Additionally, the processor determines the three-dimensional position on the model corresponding to the selected damage information and displays the relevant management section in a distinguishable manner. The device offers advanced display controls, enabling users to manipulate the three-dimensional model by enlarging, shrinking, translating, or rotating it based on the selected position. Users can switch between different display states to control the perspective and line-of-sight direction for enhanced visualization.

Moreover, the patent includes claims for an information display method and a computer-readable recording medium storing an information display program. These aspects focus on displaying damage information of each management section of a structure in a list format, accepting user selections, determining three-dimensional positions on the model, and displaying the corresponding management sections distinctly. The method and program also allow for advanced manipulation of the three-dimensional model based on selected positions, offering users the flexibility to control the display state for optimal viewing. Overall, the patented technology provides a comprehensive solution for visualizing and managing damage information in association with a three-dimensional model, enhancing the user experience and efficiency in structural analysis and maintenance.
