The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks comments on an OGC discussion paper, „Requirements and Space-Event Modeling for Indoor Navigation.“
The discussion paper presents a model for indoor navigation that simultaneously addresses route planning, multiple localization methods, navigation contexts, and different locomotion types.
Deke Smith, Executive Director, buildingSMART alliance(TM), explained that, „Few current standards efforts are as critical as having open, international consensus standards that connect indoor and outdoor location. The building industry is entering a period of unprecedented collaboration and transparency regarding finance, energy, security and environmental impact and safety. Makers of phones and apps have everything else in place for an explosion of indoor location services. We encourage all stakeholders to comment on this paper and get involved in not only this standards effort but also the NBIMS-US openBIM standards effort.“
