fill pattern:  The drawing pattern for the interior of a polygon for display or printing.  TNTmips lets you create and assign fill patterns for raster (paint), vector, and CAD operations.  A fill pattern can be as simple as a solid color, or as detailed as a repeated image of a duck or tree.  Soil types can be represented by traditional color cross-hatching.  Fill patterns can be designed from the 64 standard colors plus transparent (so the underlying image shows through).
