BBC News - Goce gravity map traces ocean circulation
Scientists have produced what they say is the most accurate space view yet of global ocean currents and the speed at which they move. The information has been drawn from a range of satellites, but in ...
Data model
A data model organizes data elements and standardizes how the data elements relate to one another. Since data elements document real life people, places and things and the events between them, the dat...
Entity-relationship model
In software engineering, an entity–relationship model (ER model) is a data model for describing the data or information aspects of a business domain or its process requirements, in an abstract way tha...
Generic data model
Generic data models are generalizations of conventional data models. They define standardised general relation types, together with the kinds of things that may be related by such a relation type.
Semantic data model
A semantic data model in software engineering has various meanings: Typically the instance data of semantic data models explicitly include the kinds of relationships between the various data elements,...

Relational database
A relational database is a digital database whose organization is based on the relational model of data, as proposed by E.F. Codd in 1970. This model organizes data into one or more tables (or "relati...
Database model
A database model is a type of data model that determines the logical structure of a database and fundamentally determines in which manner data can be stored, organized, and manipulated. The most popul...

Relational algebra
Relational algebra, first described by E.F. Codd while at IBM, is a family of algebra with a well-founded semantics used for modelling the data stored in relational databases, and defining queries on ...
Semantic reasoner
A semantic reasoner, reasoning engine, rules engine, or simply a reasoner, is a piece of software able to infer logical consequences from a set of asserted facts or axioms. The notion of a semantic re...
Unified Modeling Language
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose modeling language in the field of software engineering, which is designed to provide a standard way to visualize the design of a system.It was ...
Visualization (computer graphics)
Visualization or visualisation (see spelling differences) is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. Visualization through visual imagery has been an effec...
Flat file database
A flat file database is a database which, when not being used, is stored on its host computer system as an ordinary, non-indexed "flat" file. To access the structure of the data and manipulate it, the...
