CS Odessa Adds Free Crow’s Foot Notation Model to ConceptDraw Solutions

The originator of Crow's Foot Notation was Gordon Everest, who in 1976 put forward the idea of how to visually represent the different types of relationships that can exist between objects in an entity relationship diagram (ERD). A visual characteristic of Crow's Foot notation is the use of a three pronged fork symbol that is used to indicate the “many” side of the relationship. The Crow's Foot Notation is often used in Entity-Relationship models to describe how a table's data can reference data in other tables in a database. CS Odessa has released a Crow's Foot Notation solution for ConceptDraw PRO v11. With its help, it is easy to create clear and accurate ER diagrams with large number of attributes.

The entity-relationship model is comprised of a number of 2D representational shapes and some visual conventions to describe data and data structures. CS Odessa has released a free Crow's Foot Notation library and samples that are available for use with ConceptDraw PRO v11, this new Entity-relationship solution can be downloaded from the ConceptDraw Solution Park located on the ConceptDraw web site. The Crow's Foot Notation is a popular standard and is widely used for database and software design.

ConceptDraw PRO is compatible with macOS and Windows. It is well-known for its ability to exchange documents with Microsoft Visio — the de facto standard in business graphics documents. ConceptDraw PRO can open and save documents that can be used by Visio users.
