proximity map:  A map that shows the distance from selected features by gradient shades of color.  TNTmips can produce a “distance raster” that shows distances from vector elements.  Cells that are close to the vector elements have low values, and cells that are farther away have higher values.  When displayed such raster objects show greater distances with greater display intensities.
