Concept Map » Concept Mapping changes

A way of representing relationships between ideas, images or words, in the same way that a sentence diagram represents the grammar of a sentence, a road map represents the locations of highways and towns, and a circuit diagram represents the workings of an electrical appliance. In a concept map, each word or phrase is connected to another and linked back to the original idea, word or phrase. Concept maps are a way to develop logical thinking and study skills, by revealing connections and helping understand how individual ideas form a larger whole. Wikipedia

Concepts

The predicate "acts as" is used to describe roles a concept may play or states in which a concept may exist. For example:

  • User acts as Administrator
  • Asset acts as Decommissioned Asset
  • Location acts as Destination
  1. Acts As Predicate is a Well Known Predicate

A perceived regularity or pattern in events or objects, or records of events or objects, designated by a label. J. Novak

For example:

  • Asset
  • Member Of Public
  • Local Government
  • Inspection
  1. Concept acts as Object
  2. Concept acts as Subject
  3. Concept has Name
  4. Domain declares Concept

A (hierarchical) network comprised of concept-terms (nodes) and directed lines linking pairs of nodes; the linking lines are labeled with explanations of the relationship between node pairs.

  1. Concept Map visualises Domain

A specified sphere of activity or knowledge. For example:

  • Infrastructure Asset Management
  • Rates
  • Inventory
  1. Concept Map visualises Domain
  2. Domain declares Concept
  3. Domain declares Proposition
  4. Domain has Name

The predicate "has" is used to describe properties of a concept. For example:

  • Customer has Name
  • Address has Street
  • Product has Unit Price
  1. Has Predicate is a Well Known Predicate

The predicate "is a" is used to describe sub-types. For example:

  • Polygon is a Shape
  • Triangle is a Polygon
  • Square is a Polygon
  1. Is A Predicate is a Well Known Predicate

The predicate "is also known as" is used to describe synonyms. For example:

  • Asset Class is also known as Asset Type
  • Fair Value is also known as Market Value
  • Remaining Useful Life is also known as Residual Life
  1. Is Also Known As Predicate is a Well Known Predicate

The predicate "is composed of" is used to describe whole-part relationships. For example:

  • Machine is composed of Part
  • Asset is composed of Component
  • Facility is composed of Asset
  1. Is Composed Of Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  2. Is Included In Predicate is the inverse of Is Composed Of Predicate

The predicate "is included in" is used to describe whole-part relationships. For example:

  • Part is included in Machine
  • Component is included in Asset
  • Asset is included in Facility
  1. Is Included In Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  2. Is Included In Predicate is the inverse of Is Composed Of Predicate
  1. Predicate is also known as Linking Word

Labels used to identify various components of a concept map. Names must contain one or more words with each word beginning with either an uppercase letter, a number, or a symbol such as '&', '$', '@', etc.

  1. Concept has Name
  2. Domain has Name

The Concept to which a statement or proposition is directed. For example, given the statement "Square is a Polygon", "Polygon" is the Object.

  1. Concept acts as Object
  2. Proposition has Object

A predicate is the verb that links concepts to form a proposition. Predicates must contain one or more words composed entirely of lowercase letters. For example:

  • describes
  • focuses on
  • is performed in accordance with
  1. Predicate is also known as Linking Word
  2. Predicate is also known as Verb
  3. Proposition has Predicate
  4. Well Known Predicate is a Predicate

Propositions are formed by linking two concepts with a predicate. These become the fundamental units of meaning stored in the concept map.

  1. Domain declares Proposition
  2. Proposition has Object
  3. Proposition has Predicate
  4. Proposition has Subject

The Concept about which a statement or proposition is made. For example, given the statement "Square is a Polygon", "Square" is the Subject.

  1. Concept acts as Subject
  2. Proposition has Subject
  1. Predicate is also known as Verb

Capstone provides special features if you use certain "well known" predicates. All of these well known predicates are documented separately.

  1. Acts As Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  2. Has Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  3. Is A Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  4. Is Also Known As Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  5. Is Composed Of Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  6. Is Included In Predicate is a Well Known Predicate
  7. Well Known Predicate is a Predicate
