PAS 1192-2:2013: Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling (now replaced by BS EN ISO 19650) defines the requirements for achieving building information modelling (BIM) Level 2.
It defines an attribute as: 'A piece of data forming a partial description of an object or entity, where entities and objects are synonyms, meaning items having a state, behaviour and unique identity, that is, a thing we can think or talk about, such as a wall.'
The Geospatial Glossary, published by the Geospatial Commission, and accessed on 17 September 2022, defines an attribute as a: ‘Named property of an entity. Descriptive information about features or elements of a database. For a database feature like census tract, attributes might include many demographic facts including total population, average income, and age. In statistical parlance, an attribute is a variable, whereas the database feature represents an observation of the variable.’
