STRUCTURED REPRESENTATION AND SHARING OF MONITORED OCCUPANCY-RELATED DATA FOR BUILDING PERFORMANCE SIMULATION APPLICATIONS

Abstract: Researchers require high quality detailed input data to apply computational approaches and develop reliable models. Toward this end, open access data is of essential importance. An important prerequisite of pervasive data sharing is the availability of a systematic ontology and standardized data formats. To address this need, we previously introduced an ontology for the representation and incorporation of multiple layers of occupancy-related data obtained via building monitoring. In the present contribution, we use this ontology as a starting point toward identification and illustration of a hierarchical data format, suitable for managing data collections of different sizes and complexity.
