Abstract: This paper describes a CityGML Building Interpolation tool (CityBIT) for the creation of user-defined and interpolated building models for planned and/or existing buildings. A brief explanation of the tool’s functionalities and the methodologies adapted to develop the tool are explained in this paper. The CityBIT aims to help urban planners and simulation scientists to facilitate CityGML model developments for energy performance simulations.
Keywords: BIM-based parametric design, structural performance-based design, multi-objective optimization, research-led teaching, industrial building
