3D city building models with their related information have increasingly become an important part and have a wide range of application areas in construction of digital city and digital earth, In view of the representation of 3D building model in hierarchy, an abstract of 3D building model based on structure details is studied, and a novel representation approach named 3D transparent building model is presented in this paper. This approach can fully use both the existing 3D modeling technologies and architecture mapping data. By employing a spatial relationship description, structural components inside a building can be represented integrated as hierarchical models in a unified 3D space.
