Subject: Re: [election-services] EML v6 DATA MODELS

2010/1/15 John Borras <John@pensive.eu>:
> Peter thanks for the comments. I think what you are saying supports my view that we can add further layers of detail, if required,  but at a later stage.  For now this should suffice.

I also think it's a great start and really thank John for putting the
time into it (as well as so many other things).  I think it's
essential to have some visual (or other) representation of how the
various EML schema map onto this data model.  The consistent
complaints I hear from people in the U.S. trying to do stuff with EML
is that they are often unsure how their own data model might map onto
the EML schema... by providing our own data model and some linkage to
the various EML schema, we could satisfy this complaint without going
the route of "assisting with implementations of EML" or whatever the
bright line is between drafting the standard and helping people use

I suspect adding schema numbers and such to these data model
representations wouldn't be particularly a good idea (that is, it
would complexify the visualizations substantially).  Is there another
figure or set of figures that could map the schema onto this data

best, Joe
