The clarity or degree to which individual elements can be discerned on a monitor or print/plot. Common monitor resolutions include 600×800 and 1280×1024 measured in pixels. Common laser printer and plotter resolutions range from 300×300 to 600×600 dots per inch. Resolution of these devices determines how accurate a printout will be or how accurate an object will appear on the screen. The actual resolution of objects saved in the drawing database is usually much higher to insure a high degree of accuracy. When drawing objects are viewed on screen or plotted their size and position is rounded to the nearest dot at the resolution of a given device.
