Paper Abstract

The information content of a metric can be modified by grouping the values into bands for reasons of economy or efficiency. Various forms of truncated metrics can carry local information efficiently. The ceiling function groups the values of the Euclidean metric on the digital plane into bands to form an integer valued metric with special properties which can be used to ease calculations.
