Specification and Implementation of a Meta-model for Information Systems Cartography
Models are used in software engineering, enterprise architecture, requirements engineering, etc. In this context, models can give support in creating a shared understanding of what exists in an enterprise. For this purpose we suggest to use a cartography tool that stores and displays the variety of models. But cartography tools have limitations in the number of enterprise levels shown. Since every model has to conform to a unique meta-model, in this paper we report on a development of a SEAM meta-model used within the Solu-QIQ cartography tool to overcome the limitations of the default cartography meta-models.
