3360RE: [TaxoCoP] data modeling and taxonomy
- Jan 4, 2010
I think Gabriel captures the overlap between data modelling and taxonomy precisely. My only comment would be that the missing component is an over-arching ontology which expresses the context of both data model and taxonomy.
A data modeler is expected to create blueprint designs (known as 'logical data models') for data structures that are then physically implemented in databases, for use by software application(s).
As part of logical data modeling a data modeler may create a generalization/specialization hierarchy of types (classes, entities), which - IMHO - is the area where data modeling and taxonomy meet most intensely.

How do data modeling and taxonomy relate?
I'm curious to hear from those of you who have done data modeling how you would describe what a data modeler does.
