Database Flowchart Symbols

Data base diagrams describes inter-related data and tables. It describes roles and relationships, internal and external dependencies, data exchange conventions and structures of knowledge domain.
ConceptDraw Software provides number of data-base chart libraries including major 49 vector symbols. Use these DFD flowchart symbol libraries to design data-base structure and models, use it to design data base process-oriented models, or simple data-oriented models. The are special drawing tools for making data flowcharts, data process diagrams, structured analysis diagrams, and information flow diagrams.

ER diagram tool for OS X

ER diagram is the most popular database design tool which lets create graphical representations of database tables, their columns and also relationships. As for the Mac users, they are very interested in powerful database diagramming tools and ER diagram tool for OS X to design professional looking E-R Diagrams and ERD drawings. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software on Mac OS X gives the ability to easy draw ERDs.

ERD Symbols and Meanings

Crow's foot notation is used in Barker's Notation, Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) and information engineering. Crow's foot diagrams represent entities as boxes, and relationships as lines between the boxes. Different shapes at the ends of these lines represent the cardinality of the relationship.
The Chen's ERD notation is still used and is considered to present a more detailed way of representing entities and relationships.
To create an ERD, software engineers mainly turn to dedicated drawing software, which contain the full notation resources for their specific database design - ERD symbols and meanings. CS Odessa has released an all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for their powerful drawing program, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

Object-Oriented Design

Being involved in the process of planning some system of interacting the objects, or in other words, being engaged in the object-oriented design in order to solve some software problem as one of the approaches used in the software design, you may find the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software a really useful tool for making the needed drawings, such as the IDEF Business Process Diagrams.

Electrical Symbols — Lamps, Acoustics, Readouts

Wiring and circuit diagrams use special symbols recognized by everyone who uses the drawings. The symbols on the drawings show how components like resistors, capacitors, inductors, switches, lamps, acoustic devices, measuring devices and other electrical and electronic components are connected together.

Cisco Network Topology. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols

The Cisco Network Diagrams solution uses Cisco network symbols and Cisco icons to visualize computer networks. Cisco Network Topology is the arrangement of the Cisco symbols that display scheme of computer network.
Any Cisco equipment on the network are named like node. Network diagram topology commonly designed within connected nodes. Cisco icons are worldwide acknowledged and mainly established as standard icons for network diagrams. You may use them loosely, but you may not rework them.
The Cisco Network Diagram shows how signals act on the networked devices, or how data routes on the network from one device to the other. There are number of physical network typologies that engineers use while constructing computer networks.

Data Flow Diagram

Data flow diagram (DFD) is the part of the SSADM method (Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology), intended for analysis and information systems projection. Data flow diagrams are intended for graphical representation of data flows in the information system and for analysis of data processing during the structural projection. Data flow diagram often used in connection with human process and can be displayed as workflow diagram. The critical Process Flow Diagram is another flowchart technique for designing data flow in connection with organizational processes. The critical Process flow diagram may use different range of symbols than a classic workflow diagram.

Network Layout

ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own Network Layout Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils from Computer and Network Diagrams object libraries.
This pinout diagram example showing a VGA connector (as viewed from the socket) was redesigned from the Wikimedia Commons file: DE15 Connector Pinout.svg. [ wiki/ File:DE15_ Connector_ Pinout.svg]
"A Video Graphics Array (VGA) connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector. The 15-pin VGA connector is found on many video cards, computer monitors, and high definition television sets. On laptop computers or other small devices, a mini-VGA port is sometimes used in place of the full-sized VGA connector.
DE-15 is also conventionally called RGB connector, D-sub 15, mini sub D15, mini D15, DB-15, HDB-15, HD-15 or HD15 (High Density, to distinguish it from the older and less flexible DE-9 connector used on some older VGA cards, which has the same shell size but only two rows of pins).
VGA connectors and cables carry analog component RGBHV (red, green, blue, horizontal sync, vertical sync) video signals, and VESA Display Data Channel (VESA DDC) data. In the original version of DE-15 pinout, one pin was keyed by plugging the female connector hole; this prevented non-VGA 15 pin cables from being plugged into a VGA socket. Four pins carried Monitor ID bits which were rarely used; VESA DDC redefined some of these pins and replaced the key pin with +5 V DC power supply.
The VGA interface is not engineered to be hotpluggable (so that the user can connect or disconnect the output device while the host is running), although in practice this can be done and usually does not cause damage to the hardware or other problems. However, nothing in the design ensures that the ground pins make a connection first and break last, so hotplugging may introduce surges in signal lines which may or may not be adequately protected against. Also, depending on the hardware and software, detecting a monitor being connected might not work properly in all cases." [VGA connector. Wikipedia]
The pinout diagram example "VGA connector pinout" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Audio and Video Connectors solution from the Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

The vector stencils library "3D directional maps" contains 40 symbols for creating pictorial maps, street maps, locator maps, transit maps, tourist maps with points of interest (POI), road maps and route maps using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Pictorial maps are a category of maps that are also loosely called illustrated maps, panoramic maps, perspective maps, bird’s-eye view maps and Geopictorial maps amongst others. In contrast to the regular road map, Atlas or topographic cartography, pictorial maps depict a given territory with a more artistic rather than technical style. The cartography can be a sophisticated 3-D perspective landscape or a simple map graphic enlivened with illustrations of buildings, people and animals. They can feature all sorts of varied topics like historical events, legendary figures or local agricultural products and cover anything from an entire continent to a college campus. ...
Pictorial maps usually show an area as if viewed from above at an oblique angle. They are not generally drawn to scale in order to show street patterns, individual buildings, and major landscape features in perspective. While regular maps focus on the accurate rendition of distances, pictorial maps enhance landmarks and often incorporate a complex interplay of different scales into one image in order to give the viewer a more familiar sense of recognition." [Pictorial maps. Wikipedia]
The design elements library "3D directional maps" is included in the Directional Maps solution from the Maps area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
