Visual Data Vault, a Graphical Modeling Language

  • “In collaboration with Dan Linstedt, we have developed a visual modeling language that facilitates to represent a Data Vault model graphically: Visual Data Vault. It’s a logical modeling language with which you can model hubs, links, satellites, and other Data Vault entities. All icons are standardized and easy to learn. A simple model can be depicted with a few symbols”.
  • “To make this notation easily available to members of any Data Vault project team, we have developed a 2010+ stencil for Microsoft Visio. This can be requested via the form on this page. It can be used in projects free of charge”.
