A plane figure having four angles, and consequently four sides; any figure having four angles.
A square or quadrangular space or inclosure, such a space or court surrounded by buildings, esp. such a court in a college or public school in England.
Typically refers to a map sheet published by the U.S. Geological Survey, a 7.5 minute quadrangle series or the 15 minute quadrangle series. Also known as a topographic or topo map.
A four-sided area of the surface of the earth used as a unit in mapping.
A square named section of a map of a whole area.
A four-sided area bounded by lines of longitude and latitude which define the extent of a map sheet, usually are in a map series. For example, a 30' longitude x 15' latitude quadrangle is used as the standard dimensions for the 1:50 000 scale National Topographic System map series of Geomatics Canada.
Four-sided enclosure. Most missions were laid out using a quadrangle design.
An area used as an area unit in mapping
an enclosed courtyard or patio, having four sides
a four-sided polygon
a rectangular area surrounded on all sides by buildings
a collection of logical volume LBNs, here referred to as VLBNs, mapped to a single disk
a four-sided area bounded by two lines ( parallel s) of latitude and two lines of longitude ( meridian s) on a map
cell in Zygoptera wings bounded by M, Cu, Arculus and a crossvein between M and Cu.
a four-sided area that is bounded by parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude and is used as an area unit in mapping. A quadrangle, or quad, is the area shown on one of the standard topographic sheets published by the USGS. [ return to the top
A quadrangle is a four-sided area bounded by two lines (parallels) of latitude and two lines of longitude (meridians) on a map.
Four-sided area, bounded by parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude used as an area unit in mapping (dimensions are not necessarily the same in both directions). Also, a geometric figure of significance in geodetic surveying.
A four-sided region, usually bounded by a pair of meridians and a pair of parallels.4
A tract of land represented by one US Geological Survey map sheet.
the area of land included on each of the atlas sheets published by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Four-sided enclosure or courtyard surrounded by buildings on all sides.
or quadrilateral A polygon with four sides.
mission building built in a four-sided shape
A square area of land which measures 24 miles on each side
A square-shaped land area, 24 miles on each side. Frequently used in the government rectangular survey method of land description.
1. A four sided enclosure surrounded by buildings. 2. A quadrilateral. 3. One of the survey map sheets published by the USGS.
Rectangular area bordered on all sides by buildings and is often grassy with decorative landscaping. A quadrangle can be found in a central business district or on the site of an academic institution.
See topographic map.
In architecture, a quadrangle, or more colloquially, quad, is a space or courtyard, usually square or rectangular in plan, the sides of which are entirely or mainly occupied by parts of a large building. The word is probably most closely associated with college or university campus architecture, but quadrangles may be found in other buildings such as palaces. Most quadrangles are open air, while a few have been glazed over often to provide additional space for social meeting areas or coffee shops for students.
