- Evaluate the positive and negative impacts of the shift from integrated topological models
- Discuss the role of graph theory in topological structures
- Exemplify the concept of planar enforcement (e.g., TIN triangles)
- Demonstrate how a topological structure can be represented in a relational database structure
- Explain the advantages and disadvantages of topological data models
