Data Types

Mongo DB can store many different types of data but the purpose of this data layer is to abstract this into several basic types of data and meta data. For the moment we have the following.

Text

Any basic string of data.

DataTime

C# date time.

Value

Stored value in double.

The type declaration includes other information such as the scaled units such as k, m or G etc. It also includes to physical quantity type, N Kg etc.

ScienceQuantitySet

Same as above but an array of double values.

This also includes in the type declaration information on how to graph this in the UI.

Files

Collection of zero or many files stored using Mongo's GridFS.

VersionedFile

Single file that can be updated and have previous versions stored and indexed, again stored using GridFS.
