Topology

Topology is a data structure often used in GIS. Topology is the stored relationships between map features. When topology has been created (such as in an ARC/INFO coverage), the file would “know” its position, “know” what is around it, “understand” its environment by virtue of recognizing its surroundings, and “know” how to get from A to B. Topological relationships are stored in a series of relational databases. Each database stores information about a feature.

Example of Topology

A database would store the following information about each individual arc:

  • Number of the arc
  • Beginning node number
  • Ending node number
  • Polygon to its left
  • Polygon to its right

 In this way, each node, line, and polygon could be defined by its neighbors and what it is connected to.
