Abstract

Navigation and tracking systems became a traditional tool of positioning determination and route guidance for moving objects such as vehicles and pedestrians. Position techniques like Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and map information about navigation space are fundamental elements in these systems. As matching a position into the map, a route plan is determined by navigational knowledge of space constraints. In this paper, we propose an extension model of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) IndoorGML for representing a seamless navigation space, called Seamless Navigation Model (SNM). In particular, we link the existing spatial models for seamless navigation between indoor and outdoor environments for not only humans but also robots instead of developing a unified model of indoor and outdoor spaces. This study presents how to realize the concept of Anchor node in IndoorGML and define characteristics to connect different geospatial models of indoor and outdoor spaces. Finally, we provide a use-case of SNM with a road network represented by OGC CityGML, which is a standard format for the storage and exchange of virtual three-dimensional city models. Our model can reduce the integration cost of different geospatial models and encourage the reuse of the current map information for various tasks not only seamless navigation.
