Mapping CityGML Energy ADE and IFC 4


For my research on multiscale energy analysis, I am mapping CityGML EnergyADE Features / Attributes to IFC 4 Entities / Properties. I am looking for help from the community to complete this Google Sheet as many of the features are way beyond my knowledge (especially regarding building systems!).
Maybe @jwouellette and @mirbek.bekboliev can suggest somebody that has some experience?
This could be an interesting exercise in view of a future Energy MVD!

I am looking to achieve something like this:

Each sheet in the document represents a Module in the EnergyADE. These are:

  • Energy ADE Core
  • Building Physics
  • Material and Construction
  • Occupant Behaviour
  • Supporting Classes

Some general info:
CityGML is an open data model for storage and exchange of virtual 3D city models issued by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). It aims to reach a common definition of the basic entities, attributes, and relations of a 3D city model. The data model can be extended with domain-specific ADEs (Application Domain Extensions) such as EnergyADE, NoiseADE and UtilityNetworkADE.

if you really want, you can have a look at the EnergyADE documentation here.

I hope this will raise some interesting conversation!
