MetadataShow full item record
Many individuals lack the knowledge and confidence to identify asbestos-containing material despite its ubiquity in the Australian residential environment. Therefore, the aim of the project was to develop, test, and implement a mobile phone application to assist with the identification of asbestos-containing material. This thesis demonstrates how a mobile phone application can be used as a data collection tool in order to estimate the prevalence and current condition of asbestos-containing materials remaining in residential settings.
