4.11.3 Example of DOR Usage from RESQML

In RESQML, the relationships between features, interpretations, representations and properties (informally referred to as the “FIRP”) are parent-child relationships held by the child(ren). Figure 4.11.3-1 shows an example, which is further explained in the text below. As explained in the previous section, the child data objects specify the relationship.

Figure 4.11.3-1 Example of relationships in RESQML for FIRP. Property "is supported by" (or provides values for) a representation; a representation "represents" an interpretation; an interpretation "interprets" a feature.

Each data object (except the feature) has a data object reference, which includes the UUID of the data object it references and the type of relationship. The relationships can be described as follows:

  • Horizon 1 Interpretation interprets a genetic boundary feature of UUID= 0000.
  • 2D Grid represents a horizon interpretation of UUID= 0001.
  • A Local Curvature isSupportedBy (i.e., has numeric values and is described within) a 2D grid representation of UUID= 0002.

Figure 4.11.3-2 shows the addition of several children, which include a new interpretation, representation and property.

Figure 4.11.3-2 The previous example is extended to show multiple children with the addition of: another interpretation of the boundary feature (UUID 1001), another representation of the horizon interpretation (UUID 2002), and another property on the first representation (UUID 1003).
