virtual process:  (for MIPS v3.3 and earlier) An operation performed on a raster or vector object that is bigger than the display screen (rasters up to 32,000 x 32,000 cells and vector collections of up to 2 billion coordinate pairs).  You set up and guide the process on the display screen, and the system applies the procedure to the whole image.
