Yes. From a bitmap perspective, anyway.
And certainly circles, even from a vector computer graphics point of
view are actually polygons, not circles. Which is really my problem..
And is directly related to dynamic zooming. I am in fact attempting to
make my algorithm for converting a representation from a circle (i.e.
polygon) to a line and back again sensitive to the actual zoom level.
At some definition of local, the circle becomes a line.
Summer must be over . I have time for this kind of fun again.
