Record Type: concept
tilings (geometric patterns) (geometric patterns, <patterns by specific type>, ... Design Elements (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Geometric patterns of shapes, covered on a plane, without gaps or overlaps. Used with computer design and mathematics, as opposed to the physical act of creating a mosaic of 3-D tiles.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Geometrische patronen van vormen die een oppervlak bedekken, zonder overlapping of ruimten ertussen. Wordt gebruikt bij computerontwerpen en in de wiskunde. Het gaat hier dus niet om het fysiek creëren van een mozaïek van driedimensionale tegels. 
Spanish ..... Motivos de figuras geométricas, que cubre un plano, quedando montados unos sobre otros o sin espacio. Usado para el diseño y matemática computacional, en oposición al acto físico de crear un mosaico de azulejos tridimensionales.
