The semantics of object of a digital vector map contains the attributes (properties, metadata) of the object, similar to the fields of a database. Unlike a database table, different object instances of the same layer can have a different set of attributes, and a number of attributes can be repeated with different values. For example, one object of "forest" type can have the attribute "vegetation type" with the value "pine" and the attribute "average tree thickness", and other object of "forest" type will have the attribute "vegetation type" with the value "birch" and the attribute "vegetation type" with "spruce" value without specifying the thickness of trees.
Object semantics consists of a code of the semantic characteristic and its value.
Object semantics can be mandatory, affecting the view (also mandatory), possible, general, service, to be repeated.
Mandatory semantics values must always be assigned to an object. When changing the semantics, influencing the view, the conventional symbol of the object automatically changes.
Possible semantics may be not filled for individual object instances.
The assignment of semantics to an object is performed by tools of the Classifier Editor.
General semantics can be assigned to any object on a vector map.
Service semantics usually are the general one, they have the fixed numeric codes and the predetermined purpose.

32861 COMMENT TO THE OBJECT
Object semantics is filled taking into account its type specified in the digital classifier of a vector map. The semantics value can be string, numeral value, date, color, file link, URL-link, GUID, classifier code from the list, calculated mathematical formula, programmable numeric or string formula (combined string). Programmable semantics are implemented through external dynamic linked libraries.
To assign arbitrary properties to an object that are not described in the list of semantics of the RSC classifier, user semantics are supported in the form of a "name:value" string with code 32862. An arbitrary number of user semantics can be assigned to any object.
