ACTIVE3D: SEMANTIC AND MULTIMEDIA MERGING FOR FACILITY MANAGEMENT

Renaud Vanlande, Christophe Cruz, Christophe Nicolle

Abstract

This paper presents a Semantic Web approach for facility management. This Web-based platform lets geographically dispersed project participants—from facility managers and architects to electricians to plumbers—directly use and exchange project documents in a centralized virtual environment using a simple Web browser. A 3D visualization lets participants move around in the building being designed and obtain information about the objects that compose it. This approach is based on a semantic model called CDMF and IFC 2x3. CDMF improves data management during the lifecycle of a building. Based on graph combinations and the contextual element SystemGraph, our proposition, addresses the problem of model evolution, of data mapping, management, of temporal data and the problem of the data adaptation according to the use and the user. Our framework, based on Building Information Modeling features, facilitates data maintenance (data migration, model evolution) during the building lifecycle and reduces the volume of data.
