Schematics and Maps

Overview

Schematics and maps are visual representations of the objects within a system, such as diagrams of computer systems, subway stations, or underground cable routing. Schematic diagrams may show only a specific section of a greater whole, where objects can be visually represented. Diagrams are also often represented with objects and connections on a physical map, such as a mapping of airline routes or oil and gas field wells.

With schematics and maps, users are able to better understand complex architectures and connections within their systems and subsystems. They can then use this information to plan proposed updates to see how different adjustments may affect the system as a whole, and choose the best option.
