Diagrams from other Domains

The application of diagram interpretation has been extended to domains other than Entity- Relationship diagrams (ERDs) including:

UML sequence diagrams
UML Class diagrams
Biological flow diagrams
Context diagrams

This work has indicated that our approach could work for a much wider class of diagrams. We have, therefore, generalised the work to cover types of diagram with the following characteristics:

  • Objects are represented by two-dimensional geometric shapes
  • Relationships are represented by piece-wise linear connections
  • Relationships between objects can be represented spatially
  • Objects have labels and attributes
  • Relationships have adornments
  • There can be recursive relationships (between an object and itself)
  • A relationship can be between
    • two objects
    • an object and another relationship
    • two relationships
