Abstract

A set of topological invariants for relations between lines embedded in the 2-dimensional Euclidean space is given. The set of invariants is proven to be necessary and sufficient to characterize topological equivalence classes of binary relations between simple lines. The topology of arbitrarily complex geometric scenes is described with a variation of the same set of invariants. Polynomial time algorithms are given to assess topological equivalence of two scenes. Invariants and efficient algorithms is due to application areas of spatial database systems where a model for describing topological relations between planar features is sought
