Managing semantics knowledge for 3D architectural reconstruction


this work aims at bound geometrical detection of 3D objects from a point cloud using semantic descriptors to improve reusability of architectural building reconstruction and aid automatic reasoning in building information modeling (BIM). Based on exploring cognitive origins of spatial semantics representations, semantics conceptualization and classification is proposed for formal management of 3D architectural objects. The knowledge classification composes definition, partial knowledge and ambiguous knowledge, and is formalized with transformations among closed world assumption (CWA) and open world assumption (OWA). Systemic case study is conducted on a simplified building prototype complying with the IFC standard. The organization of empirical knowledge rules is revealed, and semantics scopes are addressed both in the bottom up manner of geometry  topology semantics, and a vice versa top down manner. Partial experiments are conducted in the form of intermediate analysis models during the knowledge modeling process, and initial reasoning demonstrations on the platform of protégé with semantic web rule language (SWRL) rules. This work is promising towards meeting optimization requirement which demands the integration of what users want, what theorists believe possible and what practitioners think practical.
