Is Abstract: 
no
Is Pattern: 
no
Definition: 

Describes the correspondence between concepts in a correspondence table related to one or more Statistical Classifications.

Explanatory Notes: 

A Map is the pairing of similar Concepts. Each Concept in the Map belongs to a different Collection. The collection of maps for all the Concepts in corresponding Collections is a Correspondence Table.

A simple example might map the following 2 martial status category sets:
MS1 -
single
married
widowed
divorced

MS2 -
single
married

So, a correspondence table between these 2 category sets might look like this:
MS1 MS2
single single
widowed "
divorced "
married married
