polygon map

polygon map

(Data West Research Agency definition: see GIS glossary.) Defines the borders of homogeneous features as well as the characteristics associated with those features which identify special land related information (e.g., a soils map describes the boundary characteristics of soil types from which the following types of information can be obtained: areas which have unstable land for construction; areas that may be within a floodplain; wetland areas; areas with high potential productivity for farming, etc.)

Polygon mapping is the cartographic display of regularly or irregularly shaped polygons and their attributes. Typically, this capability includes shading, symbology and numeric labeling, as well as other map cosmetic functions for generating alphanumeric labeling of polygons.

Among the topics are modeling and analyzing an arc weld inverter based on double closed-loop control, an interface based on mouth open/close motions, dynamic responses for viscoelastic shock absorbers to protect a finger under impact force, laser Doppler velocimetery using integrated waveguide technology, a novel technique for detecting triboelectricity under perfect non-contact conditions, erecting building facades in urban space and texture mapping to a three-dimensional polygon map using an in-vehicle camera, recovering the shape of a specular object in the presence of inter-reflection, and the integral and direct representation of nonlinear inverse mapping.
Once a vector polygon map delineates the area in which the seed varieties were planted or the tillage practice took place, a chart can be created which uses each seed variety or tillage practice area as a category.
