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.

For an Array_2D_Map, follow the instructions for Filling Out the Array_2D Data Structure, with the following additional constraints/requirements:

  • Use <Array_2D_Map> and </Array_2D_Map> rather than <Array_2D> and </Array_2D>.
  • You absolutely must include the <Display_Settings> class from the Display Discipline Dictionary in your Discipline_Area to describe the correct way to display your map object. See Filling Out the Display Dictionary Classes for more information.
  • You should also make use of the the Cartography Discipline Dictionary classes, as appropriate.
