1. A method of providing a facility graphical user interface system for data control and display comprising:
providing a data-driven engineering drawing, comprising:
a graphical representation of objects in a facility system, and
a relational database of the objects, wherein each object has a unique identifier;
launching a graphical user interface within the data-driven engineering drawing, wherein the graphical user interface corresponds to the graphical representation and further comprises retrieved data for a set of selectable objects;
presenting the set of selectable objects within the graphical user interface;
accessing, in the graphical user interface, process stream data elements correlating to at least one pipe, wherein the process stream data elements comprise a plurality of material handling properties associated with a plurality of chemical constituents of a process stream;
retrieving object-specific data from at least one data management system upon receiving a user-generated selection of a selected object in the data-driven engineering drawing;
correlating a set of object data in the relational database with the object-specific data retrieved from the at least one data management system using the unique identifier;
displaying the object-specific data in the graphical user interface; and
initiating, upon receiving a user command in the graphical user interface, a data change for the selected object to at least one of: the set of object data in the relational database or object-specific data in the at least one data management system.
