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!
