As the map paradigm shifts from analog to digital, the LOD (Level Of Detail) of spatial information needs to be redefined. In this study, we propose 4-dimensional indoor LOD model which can be used in digital map environment. For this purpose, the limitation of the previous research is derived through study of related works, and based on this, four different LODs are defined such PLOD (Position accuracy LOD) based on position accuracy, GLOD (Geometric LOD) based on shape representation, CLOD (Complete LOD) based on generalization, and SLOD (Semantic LOD) based on theme accuracy. In addition, we describe the relationships among the four different LODs, and explain how to express the indoor LOD using the four different LODs and show examples. In the future, the case studies of indoor LOD adoption for various indoor services and the study of method for applying CLOD and SLOD to each feature should be performed to verify the feasibility and validity of proposed indoor LOD.
