Logical diagrams structure

All the diagrams are in the same Namespace called "D2Payload". This namespace gathered logical diagrams in 3 namespaces:

  • Common: contains all the classes, the datatypes and enumerations that are in common with all publications.
  • Extension: is a placeholder for containing the elements composing possible extension.
  • LocationReferencing: contains classes about locations.

and 1 package:

  • PayloadPublication: containing description of publications data to be exchanged.

The logical diagram hierarchy is as the titles in the next parties. This hierarchy is synthetized in the datamodel.
