SimpleBIM: From full ifcOWL graphs to simplified building graphs

Abstract : Recent research in semantic web technologies for the built environment has resulted in several proposals to further improve information exchange among stakeholders from the domain. Most notable is the production of several OWL ontologies that allow to capture building data in RDF graphs. For example, an ifcOWL ontology allows to capture IFC data in an RDF graph. As the building data is now available in a semantic graph with an explicit formal basis, it can be restructured and simplified so that it more easily matches the different requirements associated with practical use case scenarios. In this paper, we investigate several proposals and technological approaches to simplify ifcOWL building data, thus addressing the needs of specific industrial use cases.
