The map discussed here, of course, was an especially fraught representation, erasing these meanings through the translation of thick places as minimalist, cartographic symbols and their insertion into gridded, striated, Cartesian space.
Hence, the (x, y) coordinates from Cartesian space are mapped to ([rho], [theta]) coordinates in log-polar space.
Figure 2 shows a camera alignment that has been optimized for overall focus in Cartesian space.
Xenakis's architecture was an early and explicit manifestation of the deconstruction of Cartesian space, a process that had begun with the discovery of the fourth dimension in mathematics by Riemann a hundred years before.
Her seminal piece, Reticularea, 1969, a large environment of delicate, irregular meshes of metal that hang from the ceiling, is meant to disrupt the idealized Cartesian space of rationalism (the work was unfortunately not included in the show).
Cartesian space is occurrent space for Heidegger, measurable in physical terms.
Offering a different theoretical perspective, Fred Plog in the next paper examines the traditional evolutionary categories as quadrants of Cartesian space along the axes of scale, stability, and complexity and argues that tribes and chiefdoms are behaviorally less complex (less predictable) than bands and states and are structurally ill adapted to non-homogeneous environments.
Researchers at the Texas Engineering Experiment Center, which is part of Texas A&M University (College Station), have developed a sensor system based on light-emitting diodes (LED) that can rapidly and reliably locate a robotic end effector in Cartesian space and relate that measurement to manipulator joint encoder readings, thus creating a very accurate model for open-loop control of the robot.
Every line is a locus of points in Cartesian space.
Restricting the robot motion in Cartesian space means the robot can be restrained to exactly the area in which it works; something that is not possible with the current systems that limit robot motion externally using limit switches.
In the most of robot applications, a desired position for the end-effector is usually specified in task space or Cartesian space.
