  1. Normalization of EDCS Codes The EDCS Editors & the SEDRIS LO 6th WG8 Meeting, Stuttgart, GE 26 February, 2001

  2. Issue: Several NB/LO inputs have identified potential problems in EDCS WD4 where multiple concepts have been conjoined into a single code; for example: The use of OR in Labels ECC AIRPORT_OR_AIRFIELD The use of or in definitions EAC FARMING_TYPE, defined as “Type of field pattern or use.” It is desirable that codes in this International Standard represent “atomic” (distinct) concepts It is also desirable that codes representing composites of “atomic” concepts be supported An “atomic” concept from the perspective of one encoding(e.g., “industrial plant”), may also validly be A “specified composite” from the perspective of another encoding (e.g., <“steel mill” or “automotive plant” or “heavy manufacturing facility”>, as opposed to <“foundry” or “machine shop”>) Normalization of EDCS Codes

  3. 129 cases of ECC Labels including “OR” Listed on next slide 394 additional cases where the definition includes the term “or” which may indicate two more “atomic” (distinct) concepts, but is not reflected in an “OR” in the current Label Current use of or in Labels is not consistent Appear* to be two distinct cases: Alternative names for same concept ATS_ROUTE_SEGMENT_OR_LEG DISK_OR_DISH_ANTENNA FLAGSTAFF_OR_FLAGPOLE TOWN_OR_TOWNSHIP Different “atomic” concepts CHAIN_OR_WIRE MARSH_OR_SWAMP ORCHARD_OR_PLANTATION RAILROAD_SIDING_OR_SPUR “OR”s in Classifications *: Since the Label is not definitive, one must examine the definition in order to make a final determination.

  5. 1. Alternative names should be resolved to a single name 2. Additional ECCs should be introduced for atomic concepts E.g., MARSH, SWAMP 3. The existing “composite concept” should betied to them, & 4. A new generalized Label applied to the“composite concept” where appropriate, e.g.: WETLANDS: A saturated area, at times covered with water, supporting vegetation which may include trees. Maybe further delineated specifically as ECC MARSH* or ECC SWAMP*. (See also LAND_SUBJECT_TO_INUNDATION*.) MARSH: Periodically flooded or continually wet region having the surface not deeply submerged. It is covered dominantly with sedges, cattails, rushes, or other hydrophytic plants. (See also WETLANDS* and SWAMP*.) SWAMP: A region saturated with water throughout much of the year, but with the surface of the soil usually not deeply submerged. It is generally characterized by tree or shrub vegetation. (See also WETLANDS* and MARSH*.) ECC Proposed Resolution See: http://sis.agr.gc.ca/cansis/glossary *Hyperlinked

  11. 1. Alternative names should be resolved to a single name 2. Additional EECs should be introduced for atomic concepts, E.g., AIRPORT, AIRFIELD 3. The existing “composite concept” should betied to them, & 4. A new generalized Label applied to the“composite concept” where appropriate, e.g.: AIR_TRANSPORT_SITE: A defined land or water site used for landing, take-off, and movement of aircraft including associated buildings and facilities. May be further delineated specifically asEEC AIRPORT* or EEC AIRFIELD*. AIRPORT: A complex for civil aircraft, comprising runways, hangers, and passenger facilities.(See also AIRFIELD* and AIR_TRANSPORT_SITE *.) AIRFIELD: A land site set aside for the take-off, landing, and maintenance of aircraft.(See also AIRPORT*and AIR_TRANSPORT_SITE *.)

  12. Full list of occurrences has not been compiled Two examples appear on next few slides There may be additional cases where the definition appears to be “atomic”, but the list of enumerates appears to reflect multiple implied distinct concepts Splitting the existing composite concept into two (or more) new atomic EAC concepts will require splitting the existing set of enumerates -- this may result in: An exact partitioning of existing enumerates Some enumerates appearing in multiple new-enumeration lists, but with different definitions Occasionally, the addition of new enumerates in the new-enumeration lists The mechanism for relating individual enumerates “between” attributes is more complex Express or Implied “OR”s in Attributes of Type Enumerated

  18. ECC, EAC, and EEC Labels expressing alternative names The Label should be revised to express a single “name” ECC, EAC, and EEC Codes expressing multiple concepts Additional ECCs, EACs, or EECs should be introduced for appropriate new atomic concepts The “composite concept” definition should be tied to the new atomic concepts through the use of the phrase “May be further delineated specifically as” plus appropriately hyperlinked references to the new atomic concepts A new “generalized” Label should be applied to the“composite concept” as appropriate (this may not be possible in all cases) EACs of type enumerated with express or implied “or”s Additional EACs should be introduced for appropriate new atomic concepts The definition of the existing “composite concept” EAC should be revised to incorporate exactly the scope of the new EACs The enumerates of the existing “composite concept” EAC should be defined through the use of the phrase “See” plus an appro-priately hyperlinked reference to a new atomic-EAC enumerate Summary
