An entity relationship diagram (also called an entity relationship model) is a graphical representation of entities and their relationships to each other. This type of diagram is used in databases or information systems design. ERDs help you to visualize interrelationships between elements in a database and illustrate how they are involved in a system.

About the entity relationship diagram template

How do you draw entity relationship diagrams?

Here are the steps:

  1. Identify all the entities in the system. An entity should appear only once in a diagram. Create rectangles for all entities and name them properly.

  2. Identify relationships between entities. Connect the relationships with lines or arrows.

  3. Add meaningful names to the entities so they’re easy to understand.
