SEMANTIC AND TOPOLOGICAL REPRESENTATION OF BUILDING INTERIORS - An Overview

B. Domínguez, Á. L. García, F. R. Feito

Abstract

Software related to urban environments has experimented a considerable growth over the last years. This trend makes necessary the creation and management of urban models, both for cities and building indoors. There exists a huge variety of proposals dealing with the geometry, topology and semantics of building indoors. In this paper we give an overview of a number of recent works from several research areas such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Building Information Models (BIM), Building Product Models (BPM) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools and propose a reference architecture which gathers the analyzed features.
