Building Knowledge about Buildings

Matthew T. Young, Eyal Amir

The ability to encode information about the structure of buildings is essential for the development of applications which are able to reason about buildings and answer queries concerning their design and function. Currently, the only methods of encoding structural information are bloated, inconsistent, and poorly defined, making the development of these applications impossible. In this paper, we outline a new language for encoding this knowledge using description logic. This language is designed to be both simplistic and powerfully expressive.
