Yeah. If the dot is not in a locality it's no longer a dot ;D

... aaaaand you are prompted to mention that here for what reason, now?

Granting that may be true, I'm not sure I see the point.

Okay.

cjlr is a physicist.

But not a very good one. He still hasn't got around to disproving my Big Ripple Theory.

He's a lazy fizzy cyst.

I once read a book by Deepak Chopra, so please speak for yourself. Deepak taught me everything I need from transcendental conscious quantum superposition's which create my reality to I've been bozoned & Femionmented. Big Grin

The boundary between the localities is legislated and defined in termed of lat/long. The series of lat/long coordinates that define the boundary will land on the intersection of polygons from locality A and polygons from locality B. They will not land on the actual boundary because we defined it to have zero extension but the polygons that form the tessellations still have edges and the coordinates will land on the the edges.

Somehow we seem to be talking past each other?

In my model, there is no point on a boundary. Boundaries are lines, and lines have zero width. Any point chosen lies in a locality.

Maybe that is not the way GIS databases are defined, but they certainly could be. I should ask my brother, he's in that business.Consider

I'm probably missing something, but so what if lines have zero width? Points also have zero width. In a mathematical coordinate system, any line or curve that you can define will contain an infinite number of points that are "on" that line. Suppose that the four quadrants are areas, and the axes are the bounday lines. You seem to be claiming that points such as (0,5) or (3,0) or (0,0) do not exist -- that it's impossible to have a point on a boundary. But it clearly is possible, and those points clearly do exist.

To consider a geographical example, much of the US/Canada border lies on the 49th parallel. In that area, points in the US have latitudes less than 49, points in Canada have latitudes greater than 49, and points with latitude 49 are on the border -- they are either in both countries or in neither country. Are you claiming that there are no points with latitude 49, just because there happens to be a border there? If so, I strongly disagree.

But then again, I may be totally misunderstanding the whole argument.
