The resolution of a computer screen
|“||is defined by the number of horizontal lines of picture elements that the screen displays and the number of pixels per line.||”|
Resolution of domain names is accomplished by a combination of computers and software, referred to as name servers, which use the data in the Domain Name System to determine which IP numbers correspond to a particular domain name.
There are four measures of resolution: spectral resolution which is measure of the narrowness of the spectral band that can be determined; temporal resolution which measures the frequency at which data of the same region can be obtained; radiometric resolution which measures how many levels of gray can be determined on a black and white image; and spatial resolution. The latter gives the smallest dimension an object can have and still be distinguished from other objects.
