feature:  An area in an image that you locate and map in the TNTmips feature mapping process.  A feature is a continuous area (it may have holes in it) that does not touch any other area of the same type.  (When two features of the same type touch, they immediately become a single larger feature.)  Features may represent anything the user chooses to isolate and identify, like ponds, lakes, agricultural fields, a biological entity in an NMR scan, or bones in a CAT scan.
