buildingSMART - Data Dictionary (bSDD)

Project name: buildingSMART International Data Dictionary (bSDD) (previously known as International Framework of Dictionaries (IFD))

Responsible organisation: buildingSMART International

Project objectives: The bSDD, originally known as the International Framework for Dictionaries (IFD), is a mechanism that allows for creation of multilingual dictionaries or ontologies. It is a reference library intended to support improved interoperability in the building and construction industry, and is one of the core components of the buildingSMART data standards programme. The objective of the project is to develop the data resources that constitute bSDD content and the tools for utilising this data. NATSPEC is a bSDD Observer organisation.
