Input and output cards

A map defines how to generate data objects of a certain type. A map contains input and output cards that transform data content from source formats to target formats. This data transformation occurs according to mapping rules on the data objects in the output card in the map.

Input and output cards represent data objects. Each card represents one data object, which is defined as a particular type. There are two types of map cards: input cards and output cards.

Each input of data and each output of data requires content definition settings. The content of each card is specified as a type in a schema.
