Towards a 3d Spatial Query Language for Building Information Models

Abstract

The paper introduces the concept of a spatial query language for building information models (BIMs) and motivates its development. It provides formal definitions using point set theory and point set topology for 3D spatial data types as well as the directional, topological, metric and Boolean operators employed with these types. It also serves to outline the implementation of 3D spatial query processing based on an object-relational database management system.
