Topology _________ Model (Cont.) Said to be _________ because: • Each object is decomposed into individual topological primitives for storage in a Dbase • Then reassembled at query time. – See discussion under Representing Geography & Data Modeling
Topology Normalized Model (Cont.) This is the model employed by ESRI’s _________ Model • Explicitly defines, stores and maintains the topological information • Employs a fixed set of tools for creating and maintaining topology. • Topological integrity is steadfastly maintained. – Un-cleaned Coverages cannot be used

Topology _________ Model Features are NOT _________ _________ into Topological primitives! Instead, each feature/object stores its entire geometry. • This means that coincident polygons/polylines will have duplicate geometries – The geometry of these features are SIMPLE – Leaves potential for slivers!
Topology Physical Model (Cont.) Topological Relationships are computed on-the-fly! • Unlike the Normalized Model which explicitly
