Senthilvel, M. Beetz, J. Bourreau, P. van Berlo, L. Publication year 2019 Abstract Since the early 2000s, different frameworks were set up to enable web-based collaboration in building projects. Unfortunately, none of these initiatives was granted a long life. Recently, however, the use of web technologies in the building industry has been gaining momentum again, considered some promising technologies for reaching a more interoperable BIM practice. Specifically, this relates to (1) Linked Data and Semantic Web technologies, and (2) cloud-based applications. In order to combine these into a network of interlinked applications and datastores, an agreed-upon mechanism for automatic communication and data retrieval needs to be used. Apart from the W3C standard SPARQL, often considered too high a threshold for developers to implement, there are some recent GraphQL-based solutions that simplify the querying process and its implementation into web services. In this paper, we review two recent open source technologies based on GraphQL, that enable to query Linked Data on the web: GraphQL-LD and HyperGraphQL Subject Buildings and Infrastructures2015 UrbanisationArchitecture and Building To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:567b9aa6-3717-4dfe-bf60-4cd575d3c4c0 TNO identifier 868193 Publisher CEUR-WS ISSN 1613-0073 Source CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 26th International Workshop on Intelligent Computing in Engineering, EG-ICE 2019, 30 June 2019 through 3 July 2019, 1-13 Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
