Linking BIM and GIS Standard Ontologies with Linked Data

Abstract : Following the analysis of existing BIM and GIS standards, formats, differences in the interpretations of the underlying concepts have been identified. Still, in each of the two considered domains several ontologies have been defined for these terms without seeking an alignment among their definitions. With this scope in mind, this article presents several mappings expressed by means of explicit semantic links between GIS concepts (as present in the related ontologies for the ISO 191XX standard family) and BIM concepts (as represented in the IFC standard ISO 16739:2018). Such semantic mappings are defined in order to ensure a knowledge continuum between both domains, thus enabling seamless reasoning in application contexts spanning over them e.g. urban contexts.
