Data file created by DigIN, a program used for information management and knowledge discovery; stores a "break model," which classifies the information from a set of digital resources (documents, Web pages, etc.) into a structure that allows patterns, relationships, and origins of data to be discovered; organizes meaning in the data by content, context, and structure, which visually comprise what is called a Borromean ring.
Break models organize data in such a way that information can be derived and extracted at any level of granularity that the user selects. Each break model can be analyzed at multiple levels of granularity and may be used to generate additional break models.
