With the rapid progress of GIS and ubiquitous computing technologies, the space that we are dealing with is no longer limited to outdoor space but being extended to indoor space. Indoor spaces has a number of differences from outdoor space, which make it difficult to realize GIS for indoor space. In order to extend the scope of GIS to indoor space, and provide integrated and seamless services, it is required to establish new theories, data models, database management systems for indoor spatial data, and applications for indoor space. In this paper, we investigate the research issues of indoor space and indoor GIS.
