The DimensionType property of the Dimension provides client applications with information about the contents of the dimension. For example, a client application may benefit from knowing that one dimension is based on geography, and another dimension is based on time. When accepting user inputs for these dimensions (for example, in the construction of an MDX statement), the client application can use a map-based control for the Geography dimension and a calendar-based control for the Time dimension.
