Abstract in different language: Generative modeling environments typically use a semantic description of a scene, which can be processed by a generation system to produce one or more geometric instatnces. In order to support an interactive environment for generative geometric modeling it is necessary to be able to convert a geometric instance into a semantic description. This paper describes such a conversion system, as part of a project to integrate the MULTIFORMES declarative geometric modeling system with a traditional interactive modeler. The conversion algorithm attempts to reverse the hierarchical scene decomposition, used by MULTIFORMES, using a bottom-up process of sub-scene agglomeration. The algorithm has three steps; first, primitive sub-scenes are recognized and discretized, next, connected sub-scenes are agglomerated, and finally disconnected sub-scenes are associated to produce a single hierarchical representation of the scene. If knowledge about the logical organization of the scene exists, this knowledge can be applied to achieve a better semantic scene description. This knowledge may come either from a previous semantic description, its related geometric representation or directly from the designer.
