Network Modeling is an aspect of information system modeling which focuses on the relationships of geography to flows of information (and flows of control) through a system. While the design of a network is most naturally graphical, tabular breakdowns of portions of the design can be very useful. The major differences among network modelling and data modeling and process modeling are that in the first we concentrate on where, when and how much information is moved, while in the second we focus on on what information is moved and where it is moved, while third the later we focus on how it is moved and when it is moved.
