CodeListValue
above ground envelope
valid
The building horizontal geometry has been captured using the above ground envelope of the building, i.e. the maximum extent of the building above ground.
CodeListValue
combined
valid
The building horizontal geometry has been obtained from the combination of the geometries of its building parts with the geometries of the building parts using different horizontal geometry references.
EXAMPLE: A building with two building parts, one captured by its footprint and the other by its lowest floor above ground, and whose geometry is obtained by merging the geometries of the building parts.
CodeListValue
entrance point
valid
The building geometry is represented by a point located at the entrance of the building.
CodeListValue
envelope
valid
The building horizontal geometry has been captured using the whole envelope of the building, i.e. the maximum extent of the building above and under ground.
CodeListValue
foot print
valid
The building horizontal geometry has been captured using the footprint of the building, i.e. its extent at ground level.
CodeListValue
lowest floor above ground
valid
The building horizontal geometry has been captured using the lowest floor above ground of the building.
This value is of interest for over-hanging buildings or for buildings on pilotis.
CodeListValue
point inside building
valid
The building horizontal geometry is represented by a point located within the building.
CodeListValue
point inside cadastral parcel
valid
The building horizontal geometry is represented by a point located within the parcel the building belongs to.
CodeListValue
roof edge
valid
The building horizontal geometry has been captured using the roof edges of the building.
NOTE: This value may be used more generally when the building horizontal geometry has been captured by the roof extent.
