What is an XML Schema? Rules.
Data are different. So find the common denominators B.C. MINISTRY OF TRANSPORTATION Updates every minute Wait time by crossing Wait time by mode Volume Queue length (km) WA STATE DEPT. OF TRANSPORTATION Updates every five minutes Wait time by crossing Wait time by mode Volume Queue length (mi)
Problems with the original schema Repetitive information. Timestamp issues. Designed for time periods, not instances. Not for all detector types.
Inventory Organized under system components more intuitive Describes details of system in one location TMDD with custom bwt elements
National portal interface Starts at the macro level. B.C. MINISTRY OFWA STATE DEPT. OF TRANSPORTATION Updates every five minutes Wait time by crossing Wait time by mode Volume Queue length (mi)
