This paper develops a taxonomy of qualitative spatial relations for pairs of regions, which are all logically defined from two primitive (but axiomatised) notions. The first primitive is the notion of two regions being connected, which allows eight jointly exhaustive and pairwise disjoint relations to be defined. The second primitive is the convex hull of a region which allows many more relations to be defined. We also consider the development of the useful notions of composition tables for the defined relations and networks specifying continuous transitions between pairs of regions. We conclude by discussing what kind of criteria to apply when deciding how fine a taxonomy to create.

this paper. A5, A6 and A7. The topological relations C ("is connected to"), P ("is a part of"), the contact relation, the interior (int) of an entity are axiomatised or defined in [Aurnague and Vieu, 1993]; P(x/e,int(y)) reads "x during e is part of the interior of y". For instance A5 reads as "if the process e described by a movement verb is internal then the trajector is part of the interior of the landmark during the SPP"
