Design of Complex Spatio-multidimensional Models with the ICSOLAP UML Profile - An Implementation in MagicDraw

Abstract

Spatial Data Warehouse and SOLAP systems allow analyzing huge volume of georeferenced data. SOLAP applications are usually complex needing advanced static and dynamic modelling properties. In particular, SOLAP applications require: multi-granular measures and complex aggregations based on aggregate functions depending on dimensions, hierarchies and levels. In this demo paper, motivated by the lack of conceptual spatio-multidimensional models based on standard languages and supporting such complex modelling requirements, we present a new UML profile for complex spatial data cubes. We implement our profile in the commercial CASE tool called MagicDraw. Using a real environmental case study, we show the theoretical and technical effectiveness of our proposal.
