: an open domain specific query language for building information models

  • L.A.J. Mazairac

Student thesis: Master


BimQL is an open, domain specific query language for Building Information Models (BIM). This query language is intended for selecting and updating data stored in Industry Foundation Class (IFC) models. Even though some partial solutions already have been suggested, none of them are open source, domain specific, platformindependent and implemented at the same time. The report presents an overview of existing approaches, the design decisions, the implementation on top of the platform, which is an open source model server, and functionality tests. The execution of example test cases show the general feasibility and scalability of the approach chosen.
