Semantic building data Community Group

This group works on creating and defining a semantic, web-author-friendly representation of building data. It will deliver a specification and tooling to work with declarative, semantic building information. Besides a specification for the data format, we plan on delivering libraries and plugins for existing software, such as A-Frame. We want to work with existing communities, such as the Linked Building Data and Declarative 3D and Declarative WebVR groups.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.
