RepresentationMap

Package: 
Is Abstract: 
no
Is Pattern: 
no
Definition: 

Maps between any two representations and describes the correspondence between source and target representations.

Explanatory Notes: 

Note that each representation may have multiple values. Mapping is expressed in a single process step. Representations may be expressed as a CodeList, Category Set, Statistical Classification, Geographic Structure Code, Geographic Location Code, or described representation.

Example: 
Category "pushchair" from category scheme A1 is mapped to category "stroller" from category scheme B5.
Property: 
NameCardinalityDatatypeDescription
name
0..n
A name for the RepresentationMap. May be expressed in multiple languages. Repeat the element to express names with different content, for example different names for different systems.
label
0..n
A display label for the RepresentationMap. May be expressed in multiple languages. Repeat for labels with different content, for example, labels with differing length limitations.
description
0..1
A description of the content and purpose of the RepresentationMap.
contextSpecificComparison
0..1
Set to "true" when a Concept has been identified in the SourceRepresentation.
validFrom
0..1
The date from which the mapping is valid.
validTo
0..1
The date after which the mapping is no longer valid.

hasProcessStep
Process Step provides the transformation process for moving from the source to the target. As used in a correspondence table it relates to the Map in the GSIM model.

hasSourceLevel
In the case of Statistical Classification: the correspondence is normally restricted to a certain Level in the source Statistical Classification. In this case, target items are assigned only to source items on the given level. If no level is indicated, target items can be assigned to any level of the source Statistical Classification.

hasTargetLevel
In the case of Statistical Classification: the correspondence is normally restricted to a certain Level in the target Statistical Classification. In this case, source items are assigned only to target items on the given level. If no level is indicated, source items can be assigned to any level of the target Statistical Classification.
