Abstract

This article aims to cast some light on the dilemma of data transfer and storage by offering examples and experiences of the ontological approach at a building scale. The world of Geographic Information Systems is not alone facing the fact. In many a field it is nowadays impossible to conduct ‘business as usual’ without the aid of sophisticated computer based tools. Our view is that in recent decades these tools have become so effective they produce more information than can be easily stored or even handled by contemporary methods. Building industry thinks in terms of building projects that have some distinct phases.
