Sheet1 Page 2 # D. ADDING ATTRIBUTES <#SEC13.4> # E. EXAMPLE ANALYSIS USING VECTOR GIS <#SEC13.5> * Objective <#SEC13.5.1> * Procedure <#SEC13.5.2> * Result <#SEC13.5.3> # REFERENCES <#SEC13.6> # EXAM AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS <#SEC13.7> # NOTES <#SEC13.8> This unit begins a two part introduction to vector GIS. We have placed these units here since we feel this discussion benefits from an understanding of the previous introduction to spatial data concepts in Units 10 to 12. However, with a little revision, it is possible to move this module so that it follows Units 4 and 5 on raster GIS. UNIT 13 - THE VECTOR OR OBJECT GIS Compiled with assistance from Holly Dickinson, State University of New York at Buffalo A. INTRODUCTION <#OUT13.1> Vector data model <#OUT13.1.1> * based on vectors (as opposed to space-occupancy raster structures) * fundamental primitive is a point * objects are created by connecting points with straight lines o some systems allow points to be connected using arcs of circles * areas are defined by sets of lines o the term polygon is synonymous with area in vector databases
