dot grid
A technique for determining the area of features on air photos and maps by using dot grids. A transparent overlay with a grid-cell pattern is overlaid on the air photo. By counting the number of cells or dots that occur within a feature, it is possible to estimate its area, knowing the area for each dot or cell.
Dot grid. In this example, it is assumed that the dot grid overlay fits 9″ x 9″ size of an airphoto which has a representative fraction (RF) of 1/15840; that is, 1″ on an airphoto is equal to 15840″ on the ground. This scale can also be restated as 1″ = 1320′ or ½ mile. If 4 cells on the grid have a length of 1″ then 1 cell has a length of ½″; the area of cell is 330 ft.

The lay flatted Mont Notebook provides ruler pages, vertical perforated pages, horizontal perforated pages, color pages, blank pages, isometric graphic paper, cartesian graph paper, dot grid paper and grid paper made purely out of eco-friendly durable paper.
The pages all feature a dot grid pattern to aid sketching and design work, and seven icons at the bottom of each page act as organising 'buttons'.
According to the patent, Apple will introduce its own take to the standard Android 3x3 dot grids.
