Dimensionality

A dimension of space, such as width, height, or length.

  • can be zero-dimensional (location point),
  • one-dimensional (e.g. line, curve, path),
  • two-dimensional (e.g. surface, face), or
  • three-dimensional (e.g. surface, face) (e.g. body, volume).

EXAMPLE

In a 3D environment, the dimensionality of a pipe can be

  • 1D to extract pipe lengths for quantity take off purposes
  • 3D for clash detection purposes
  • 2D in a 3D environment for parcel management.
  • 2D for furniture planning
  • 3D for accessibility analysis.
