Administrative​Context

Message Summary

message AdministrativeContext

Provides for a given map entity (for example, a street) a set of references to (administrative) places that are used for the individual address fields of that entity.

Often, the assignment of a given address attribute to an administrative place is not definite and there might be multiple alternative administrative places assigned to a single attribute. For that case, each administrative place assigned to an address attribute comes with some classification for this assignment.

It is assumed that AdministrativeContexts are stored as pooled value objects along with the map entities for which they provide the administrative context.

This allows the same mapping to be reused for multiple entities in the same partition.

Include: administrative_context.proto

Properties

Field Type Label Description
default​_​mapping uint32  

Refers to another AdministrativeContext object that provides default values for some of the address fields.

Based on the assumption that spatially partitioned data sets, most map entities in a given partition share most of their address levels, this enables a very compact, space optimized representation.
