The Pilot demonstrated Vector Tiles as an efficient way to package geographic data into roughly-square shaped 'tiles' with the following benefits: faster loading of web maps; flexible styling with modern, easy-to-use tools; the capability to work online and offline with the same content; and the potential to simplify interoperability for command and control, consumer mapping, disaster relief, and many other applications.
In all, there are 6 Engineering Reports documenting the various outcomes of the Vector Tiles Pilot:
Similarly, in general, except for degenerate cases, a 4 x 4 matrix like the one appearing in (2.25) transforms every 4-dimensional vector, or "4-vector" into another 4-vector in a one to one relationship, just as a 3 x 3 matrix in general transforms every "3-vector" into another 3-vector in a one to one relationship, and an n x n matrix in general transforms every "n-vector" into another n-vector in a one to one relationship.
