- Formal versus Informal Models.
- Physical Models versus Abstract Models.
- Descriptive Models.
- Analytical Models.
- Hybrid Descriptive and Analytical Models.

## What are models in sociology?

Sociological models are models in a sense that is close to the everyday meaning of model as a replica or representation. It is even reasonable to think of many of them in the other everyday sense, as exemplars, since we can point to sociological research traditions devoted to their development and test.

A descriptive model describes a system or other entity and its relationship to its environment. It is generally used to help specify and/or understand what the system is, what it does, and how it does it.

Models are a mentally visual way of linking theory with experiment, and they guide research by being simplified representations of an imagined reality that enable predictions to be developed and tested by experiment.

**What is cartographic modeling?**

Definition of Cartographic modeling: The use of basic GIS functions in a logical sequence to solve complex spatial Problems. It was developed to model land use planning alternatives, and applications that require the integrated analysis of multiple geographic ally distributed factors. [>>>]

## What is a descriptive model?

A descriptive model, on the other hand, is describing the data in a form that allows for future action strategies, but it is not a precise event. Rather, it is a perspective into large quantities of data, so business can make sense of the data. It describes data in clusters or association rules so it doesn’t need to be accurate, just approximate.
