An Information Visualization Approach to Intelligent Building Assessment
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a Knowledge-oriented Information Visualization (KIV) approach to facilitating the implementation of building rating systems such as the Asian Intelligent Building Index (AIIB) for the post-assessment of Intelligent Buildings (IBs). The KIV approach is introduced by using a prototype of KIV for IB assessment. The KIV model consists of several toolkits, including an IB Casebase for the Applications of Sustainable Technology (called IB-CAST), a web-oriented information visualization toolkit for IB assessment using Microsoft Office (called IB-Radar and IB-Compass), and a Geographical Information System (GIS) toolkit for bridging knowledge (called IB-GIS) in IB assessment, etc. A case study is used to demonstrate how the KIV approach can be applied to support IB assessment.
