Abstract:


This paper presents the mapping of an exist- ing OSCON integrated object model into construction domain ontology within seman- tic web. For the main reasons that web se- mantic ontology further improve construc- tion integration and accessibility through sharing reusable semantic construction in- formation through the web. Furthermore the paper present enhancements of the interac- tive Virtual Reality Interface by integrating VR with the semantic web ontology to fur- ther improve the interface usability, interac- tivity and its intelligence allowing all con- struction partners not only navigate and in- terrogate 3D building components but also managing and making changes to construc- tion building in terms of planning, construc- tion schedule, costs, etc...
