Core Spatial Technology: Data Modelling
What will I learn from this course?
The Data Modelling Training course provides an introduction to data modelling using Smallworld Core Spatial Technology, which is an extension of conventional relational database design. Geometry is introduced as an additional data type, and spatial and topological relations are added to the familiar cardinal relations. The course uses the Smallworld Case Tool, which is the recommended user interface for the system designer. The practical sessions gradually build up a simple Water Data Model, to demonstrate specific aspects of data modelling.
