Databases search reliability

This is part of the submitted UseCaseList.


A description of the scenario that you have in mind.

The user wants to find all the objects of same type always classified together.


How important do you see this use case as?

  • Must Support.


What other use cases are affected by the implementation of this one?

  • Databases usability / db integration / dating / authentication / cartography / bibliography


Things that the user must/might supply to the system.

  • User search criteria on a specific watermark.


Things that the user will recieve in response to their request.

  • Set of watermarks of the same category as that of the user's input.


Areas in which you foresee problems/issues arising.

  • This is an issue observed in Piccard-Online, where morphologically identical watermarks where classified in several distinct classes.


An example supporting this use case.

  • The user has a wm looking like POL-24832, which is composed of the elements: Adler, [im] Schild, [daruber] "Esslingen".
  • He wants to find the date of that watermark and other similar watermarks in Piccard-Online.
  • By browing the repertory he has the following hierarchical pathes he can look into:
    • Wappen > Schild mit Adler > Im ganzen Schild (image is here, together with POL 24832, 24831)
    • Vögel > Heraldischer Adler > Adler > Im Wappenschild > Darüber Esslingen (image is not here, but has POL 42684, 42685, 42686)
    • Vögel > Heraldischer Adler > Adler > Darüber Es(s)lingen > Klein (wrong path)
    • Vögel > Heraldischer Adler > Adler > Darüber Es(s)lingen > Groß (wrong path)
    • Buchstaben > Wort: Mehr als 3 Buchstaben (wrong path)
  • Note that POL-24832 looks the same as POL 42684, 42685, 42686, yet it is not in the same class. However, POL-24832 (Adler, Schild, Esslingen) is in the same class as POL-24831 (Adler, Schild, Krone), yet the two don't share the same elements.

Other Information

Any other information that you think is important to include.

  • ...


Comment from other partner regarding the use case.

  • This question is very important for everybody who wants a complete and responsible reply from our expert system. But the solution cannot be a technical one – the only way is to check indexing of each record and to link the single records with the new Bernstein classification schema. - FriederSchmidt
