Paper Abstract

Data modeling is a baffling problem in 3DGIS, no satisfied solution has been provided until today, reason come from various sides. In this paper, a new solution named "Ontology method" is proposed. GIS traditional modeling method mainly focus on geometrical modeling, i.e., try to abstract geometry primitives for objects representation, this kind modeling method show it's awkward in 3DGIS modeling process. Ontology method begins modeling from establishing a set of ontology with different levels. The essential difference of this method is to swap the position of 'spatial data' and 'attribute data' in 2DGIS modeling process for 3DGIS modeling. Ontology method has great advantages in many sides, a system based on ontology is easy to realize interoperation for communication and data mining for knowledge deduction, in addition has many other advantages.
