Abstract. Nowadays, the complexity of structures in urban environments and the interest in location-based applications increase simultaneously. Along with this is the rise in demand for the firm establishment of data models representing these spaces. Establishing network models that portray topological relationships of space have strengthened support for navigation applications. However, researchers have revisited the limitations of existing standards. As analogous standards have specifications for expressing space at various scales, most have focused on outdoor space or the geometric aspect. Hence, this paper proposes subspacing requirements for a Level of Detail (LOD) model for network-based topological data. We examine various constraints that influence space partition and align these with various application cases for indoor navigation. Through these, we investigate appropriate space subdivision approaches for each level according to applicable constraints and recommended applications. This study poses as an initial study towards establishing a general framework for implementing a 3D hierarchical network-based topological data model.
