Filling Out the Array 2D Map Data Structure
The <Array_2D_Map> class is a specialization of the Array_2D class. It exists on the assumption that PDS will develop map-specific requirements and software support that will be able to take advantage of assumptions and structures made for this data type.
|So far, none of that has happened, nor does it appear to be in any sort of serious planning stage. The Array_2D_Map is currently defined in the schema to have the same structure as Array_2D and also requires the deprecated <Display_2D_Image> class. Consequently, SBN strongly recommends that you do not use the Array_2D_Map structure.|
