The Architectural Datum Model
The Architectural Datum Model is intended to encourage, and support, a visual management of the spatial arrangement.
In doing so, other aspects, such as structure, detailed records and information, are potentially collated and communicated.
In effect, the model is developed in an heirarchical manner, in which the most important decisions are made first.
Essentially, this means that the model is created, via several baselines, from overall to detail and similar to Virtual Reality/ Level of Detail logic; meaning that only those items required should be included in the file.
The images illustrate the levels for the Flower Class corvette.
