In Korea, u-City has been constructed as IT-based new city with introduction of the ubiquitous concept. However, most currently provided u-services are just monitoring services based on the USN(Ubiquitous Sensor Network) technology, so spatial analysis is insufficient. Especially, buildings have been rapidly constructed and expanded in multilevels, and people spend a lot of time in indoor space, so indoor spatial analysis is necessary. Therefore, connectivity relationship in indoor space is analyzed using the topological data model. Topological relationships could be redefined due to the dynamic changes of environment in indoor space, and changes could have an effect on analysis results. In this paper, the algorithms of finding isolated zones is developed by analyzing connectivity relationship between space objects in built-environments after changes of environment in indoor space due to specific situation such as fire. And the system that visualizes isolated zones as well as three-dimensional data structure of indoor space is developed to get the analysis result by using the analysis algorithms.
