Building Information Modeling (BIM) is in the industry often confused with 3D-modeling regardless that the potential of modeling information goes way beyond performing clash detections on geometrical objects occupying the same physical space. Lately, several research projects have tried to change that by extending BIM with information using linked data technologies. However, when showing information alone the strong communication benefits of 3D are neglected, and a practical way of connecting the two worlds is currently missing.
In this paper, we present a prototype of a visual query interface running in a web browser, that enables the user to gain a deeper understanding of what can be extracted from a Building Topology Ontology (BOT) knowledge base. The implementation enables the user to query the graph, and provides visual 3D-feedback along with simple table results.
The main purpose of the paper is to establish a baseline for discussion of the general design choices that have been considered, and the developed application further serves as a proof of concept for combining BIM model data with a knowledge graph and potentially other sources of Linked Open Data, in a simple web interface.
