How To Model
Modelling in GeoDMS terms is the process of writing/editing a (set of) configuration file(s). In these files usually source data is read and calculations are configured.
It is a good habit to also document your configuration.
A GeoDMS project usually consists of:
- (a set of) configuration files
- source data
The GeoDMS uses a configuration language to configure source data, calculation steps, visualisation styles, export settings and relevant descriptive information. This information is stored in configuration files.
The GeoDMS configuration language is a declarative language. This means you configure what needs to be calculated and how the results needs to be presented. How calculations are performed in an efficient way is encapsulated in the implementation of each operator/function that can be configured in an expression.
