Abstract

In this paper, we describe a repository for architectural 3D-CAD models which is currently set up at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), Hannover as part of the larger German PROBADO digital library initiative: The proposed PROBADO-framework is integrating different types of multimedia content-repositories and adding features available in text-based digital libraries.

A metadata model for organizing the 3d model data collection has been developed. The 3D repository can be searched using both textual (metadata-based) and non-textual (e.g. 3D-sketching) retrieval mechanisms. A workflow for automated content-based data analysis and indexing is proposed.
