We introduce the Semantic Interior Mapology (SIM) toolbox for the conversion of a floor plan and its room contents (such as furnitures) to a vectorized form. The toolbox is composed of the Map Conversion toolkit and the Map Population toolkit. The Map Conversion toolkit allows one to quickly trace the layout of a floor plan, and to generate a GeoJSON file that can be rendered in 3D using web applications such as Mapbox. The Map Population toolkit takes the 3D scan of a room in the building (acquired from an RGB-D camera), and, through a semi-automatic process, populates individual objects of interest with a correct dimension and position in the GeoJSON representation of the building. SIM is easy to use and produces accurate results even in the case of complex building layouts.
