—The facility maintenance using BIM data reflects a
need for maintenance system that considers efficient operation
of administrators and managers. This system which takes
advantage of the vast amount of 3D facility data is able
implement the interoperate navigation and visualization.
However, the quick and smooth visualization process for a
large-scale BIM data is an important factor to be solves in
future. The purpose of this study is to design the spatial
indexing algorithm for effective visualization of BIM data based
on GIS, and propose the spatial indexing method reconfigures
an IFC schema structure. It is designed with the scenario of the
coordinate transformation, so the implemented algorithm is
verified with IFC sample data.
