Data Point Modelling

The Data Point Model (DPM) is a data modelling methodology developed by BR-AG – a company specializing in XBRL and the related
technologies.

The DPM has the following characteristics:

  • It produces a multidimensional model
  • It also uses hierarchies and domains to describe the relationships between attributes and allow defined sub categories and values
  • It generally aims to produce a small number of main reporting items, which can then be narrowed to represent a specific ‘data point’ using a range of metadata attributes (modeled using the dimensions and domains).
  • Implicit information about a reported concept is usually made explicit for example measurement information implied elsewhere in a note.  
  • The resulting tables produce a description or map of all possible data points resulting from the main reporting items and dimensions, this can then be limited to those useful or valid in actual reporting.
