Building Information Modelling (BIM) provides a detailed 3D geometrical model with rich semantics that go beyond the standard Computer-Aided Design approach. In contrast, Geography Information Science (GIS) offers powerful spatial analytical tools. This paper seeks to propose and innovative the research approach, integrating some aspects of BIM and advanced GIS analysis. This may advance beyond state-of-the-art emergency response applications. The advocated research approach evolves beyond the simplistic 3D indoor scene representation and instead proposes to automate the generation of navigable models depicting complex interiors readily available in the building industry area, which adopts BIM as the main tool for design and information exchange.
