Deciphering Routers in a N/W Visio diagram

I understand that the top IP address is the address of the router. But what do the numbers and letters underneath represent.  Co-workers on holiday vacation and have no one to ask.

Okay.  I got the Gigabit Ethernet part.

I'm trying to understand the significance of the numbers before and after the slash.  

The three sets of numbers surrounding the router I'm trying to understand are:
0/0
0/1.100
0/2

What do these combinations of numbers mean?

On cisco routers you can have multiple interfaces on a single card and you can install multiple cards in the chassis so Gi 0/0 Gi 0/1 and Gi 0/2 are referring to individual Gigabit interface ports 0 1 and 2 on the card that is in slot 0.
The .100 (0/1.100) is a subinterface, this is a virtual interface that can be created from a physical port for the purpose of routing between vlans

Real Gigabit port       0/1
         Subinterface     0/1.100 (maybe vlan 100)
         Subinterface     0/1.200 (maybe vlan 200)
etc
