DELFT-FEWS allows open integration with various external data sources and modules. Many of these will require identification of locations and parameters using a native definition. Delft-FEWS allows internal location Id's, parameter id's, flags and units to be mapped to external id's.
For each external data source, or each module, a different set of ID mappings may be defined. In specific cases a mapping may be used on exporting data to the module and a different mapping in importing data from the module.
Three types of mapping can be defined;
- IdMaps definition for mapping location ID's and Parameter ID's
- FlagConversions definition for mapping data quality flags
- UnitConversions definition for mapping data units
