Code Theory Model

Function of this model

This model is similar to the Single-Case Model. This model also focuses on one code, but instead of displaying the code’s coded segments it displays subcodes and memos.

Model display in the map

The code icon is put in the center of the map with the subcodes arranged in a circle around it. Subcodes can be arranged on two hierarchical levels, with the first level forming an inner circle around the code, and the second level forming an outer circle. The memos are connected to the codes/subcodes with a line. Since memos can be linked to more than one code, each code may be connected with several lines.

Code Theory Model without subcodes. Code memos and linked memos of subcodes will be displayed
Code Theory Model with integration of subcodes on 1st level: subcodes are displayed in a circle around the code. Memos are displayed in an outer second circle. The code memos and linked memos are imported, too.
Code Theory model with integration of subcodes on two levels: The subcodes are displayed around the main code.

Creating a new model and model options

Select New Model > Code Theory Model and drag a code from the “Code System” into the map. A dialog window with model options opens up:

The Code Theory Model options

Memo options

Display code memos – If this box is checked, code memos from the “Code System” are included in the map.

Max. quantity – In this part you can set the maximum number of linked memos to be displayed. If there are more memos than the set maximum quantity to be displayed, the memos will be prioritized by date (newer codes get priority) or according to memo size (longer memos get priority).

Subcode options

Display activated only – You can limit the visualized subcodes by only displaying those activated in the “Code System.”

Include subcodes – level – You can also decide how many levels of subcodes are displayed (0 = no subcodes; 1 = only the first level of subcodes; 2 = two levels of subcodes).
