Zones

This shows the three Zones of the pattern language.

Some patterns are more richly connected than others, these are the 'Action/State' pattern with six connections, the 'Stable Point of View' pattern with five connections and 'Discernable Details' with seven connections. The remaining patterns have between one and three connections. Based on this, the patterns with many connections are considered fundamental for PAI interpretation as they conflict, reinforce or are parent to many of the other patterns in the language. These three patterns and those connected to them are used to identify three connected and overlapping zones, with each zone having separate themes. 

Note that 'Instruction Format' sits outside of these zones as it is the parent pattern for the entire pattern language and thus establishes the context for all other patterns.Also some of the patterns appear in more than one Zone. The 'Stable Point of View' pattern appears in all three groups as it is related to the core patterns of the other zones, showing how central it is to the design of PAIs to depict the steps from a stable view point

Illustration

This is the richest Zone which contains patterns connected to the 'Discernable Details' pattern. The patterns included in this zone describe how objects are illustrated as well as what is included and not included in illustrations.
