Clutter -- What is it?? Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I've been working in GIS for awhile but with limited types of data. (Mostly shapefiles, coverages and geodatabases.)

Now I have a new position where I'm working with GIS data from around the world and I am finding data and terms I don't understand. I have several links to GIS dictionaries, but some terms just aren't there.

Like the term "clutter." I notice Europeans use that term a lot, such as "We have vector data, clutter data, point data....."

Please, if someone can explain in detail what the term "clutter" means, I'd be grateful. How is "clutter" usually displayed? I have some sample data with a "clutter" layer and the layer doesn't have any attribution or anything. It just looks like a polygon layer without any attribution. Is this what it's supposed to be? Help!
