Abstract. We employ a triple graph grammar to enable configurable conversion from IFC to CityGML. In this paper, we present the mathematical framework behind the graph transformation approach as well as an application to create, store and maintain transformation rules implementing this framework. Particular emphasis is put on how the approach enables graphical representation and static analysis of rules and rulesets, both in the theoretical framework and prototypical implementation. Even if various publications and tools for general graph transformation do already exist, we hope that the BIM–GIS community will benefit from a domain-specific introduction to the theory and dedicated software tools.
