20110129193 | BEND RADIUS MANAGER/SUPPORT MECHANISM - A bend radius manager includes a base having a surface, and a plurality of discrete lobes with at least one arcuate section extending away from the base surface and terminating at a top surface, an outer surface defined between the base and the top surface, the plurality of lobes configured to receive at least one media having a minimum bend radius. | 06-02-2011 |

20090303903 | TECHNIQUE FOR SHIFTING NETWORK POINTS OR LINEAR FACILITIES IN A NETWORK PLAN - A computer-implemented method receives a set of data regarding a layout of a network, where the data specifies the interconnection of linear facilities and specifies at least one network point that is disconnected from the network. The computer-implemented method further determines a closest one of the linear facilities to the at least one network point based on the set of data and shifts the at least one network point to connect the at least one network point to the network based on a distance between a vertex associated with the closest one of the linear facilities and the at least one network point. The computer-implemented method also shifts the closest one of the linear facilities to connect the at least one network point in the network based on a distance associated with a linear projection from the at least one network point to the closest one of the linear facilities. | 12-10-2009 |

20090279453 | SHIRNK WRAP TECHNIQUE FOR ENCLOSING MULITPLE POLYGONS - A computer-implemented method receives a list of polygonal vertices associated with multiple polygons located in proximity to one another in a two-dimensional region and analyzes the polygonal vertices. The method automatically generates, based on the analysis, a polygonal hull that encloses the multiple polygons such that a line segment connecting any two polygonal vertices of the multiple polygons falls completely inside the generated polygonal hull. The multiple polygons may correspond to a two-dimensional geographic region. The computer-implemented method may be used for geographic regional segmentation. | 11-12-2009 |
