CEDS Logical

Data Model

Comprised of
2 distinct views
:


Domain Entity Schema (DES)


A hierarchy
of domains, entities, attribute categories, and
attributes organizing and assigning elements to specific
entities


Used primarily
by people as an index to search, map, and
organize elements


Normalized Data Schema (NDS)


The NDS Logical Model provides a standard framework for
integration of P
-
20 data systems through a well
-
normalized
“operational data store



NDS factors the entities and attributes of the DES with standard
technical syntax and 3rd normal form
