Definition of ID maps used for mapping external parameters and ID's to DELFT-FEWS locations and parameters

Each IdMap to support mapping external to internal location and parameter Id's configured in DELFT-FEWS can be registered in the IdMapDescriptors configuration.

From Delft-FEWS version 2008.03 it is no longer required to identify the IdMap to DELFT-FEWS. If this IdMapDescriptor file does NOT exist or the individual reference to an IdMap is not present, the system will assume the corresponding IdMap file exist within the IdMapFiles directory. This functionality is similar for UnitConversion(Descriptors), FlagConversion(Descriptors) and TravelTimes(Descriptors).

Since version 2016.01 this config file is no longer supported. The are ignored when still in the database but can no longer be uploaded with the config manager.

When available on the file system or in the (central) database, the content should be in line with the available IdMap files to prevent errors. When available, the name of the XML file for configuring the IdMapDescriptors is for example:

IdMapDescriptors 1.00 default.xml

IdMapDescriptors                       Fixed file name for the IdMapDescriptors configuration

1.00                                            Version number

default                                       Flag to indicate the version is the default configuration (otherwise omitted).

Figure 46 Elements of the IdMapDescriptors configuration.


Root element of the IdMapDescriptor. New element is required for each IdMap. Multiple instances may be defined.


  • Id: Id of the idMap. This Id must be unique. Normally a string is used that gives some understanding of the role of the module (e.g. ImportRTS).
  • name: Optional name for the IdMap. Used for reference purposes only.
  • No labels
