The DURAARK team have presented their results from joint efforts in WPs 3,4,5 culminating in D3.5 at the 2015 edition of the annual international EG-ICE (European Group for Intelligent Computing in Engineering). The workshop was attended by 40 participants from 11 countries.
A schema extension for the Industry Foundation Classes data model to accommodate point cloud data as a form of geometric representation of buildings models was presented. In order to cope with the large amounts of data usually handled in point cloud based workflows and preservation scenarios a serialization of IFC instances has HDF5 was presented.
Both paper and presentation were well received and discussed extensively with other workshop participants, among which other papers focusing on point clouds were presented.
