Towards a formal definition of typology and segmentation

Date of publication: June 15, 1972


The words "Typology” and "Segmentation" are now widely known and used by everybody. However, it seems that it is not always easy to give them a clear and precise meaning. The aim of this paper is to try and focus ideas by proposing a tentative definition of these two processes of data handling. This definition should be as formal as possible, that is, independent of any particular method or technique.
