Concept help - Classification Scheme
A Classification Scheme describes a set of ideas and standard values used to record codes when storing data. When linked to multiple Value Domains, a Classification Scheme can find similarities across different sets of recorded data. A Classification Scheme can also be recorded as a Conceptual Domain where there is no standard set of codes in the classification.
