Abstract

3D spatial data modeling is one of the key research problems in 3D GIS. More and more applications depend on these 3D spatial data. Mostly, these data are stored in Geo-DBMSs. However, recent Geo-DBMSs do not support 3D primitives modeling, it only able to describe a single-attribute of the third-dimension, i.e. modeling 2.5D datasets that used 2D primitives (plus a single z-coordinate) such as polygons in 3D space. This research focuses on 3D topological model based on space partition for 3D GIS, for instance, 3D polygons or tetrahedron form a solid3D object. Firstly, this report discusses formal definitions of 3D spatial objects, and then all the properties of each object primitives will be elaborated in detailed. The author also discusses methods for constructing the topological properties to support object semantics is introduced. The formal framework to describe the spatial model, database using Oracle Spatial is also given in this report. All related topological structures that forms the object features are discussed in detail. All related features are tested using real 3D spatial dataset of 3D building. Finally, the report concludes the experiment via visualization of using AutoDesk Map 3D.
