(part of the InLOC Information Model)

InLOC properties and relationships

InLOC specifies three different kinds of properties or relationships.

Using these three kinds of properties or relationships, InLOC specifies a mechanism for property inheritance, to avoid the necessity of repeating properties that are by nature common to many LOCdefinitions. The relationships table specifies the relationships through which inheritance passes or is passed, while the tables for the direct properties and compound properties specify which properties are inherited.
