and use Concepts that stimulate this ability.

Boxary uses relational models using graph concepts. Well, Boxary is not a Graph system, neither a ORM (Object Relational Model). It uses graph awareness to promote visual thinking. And while a generic ORM defines entities as objects, Boxary defines the data model as the set (v,e) being vertices and edges. As a matter of fact, the Boxary approach is a meta approach and supports application development on graph instances defined by Boxary meta data. Therefor is has it roots in tree data structures (IT), graph traversing (math) and polygon terminology (geometry).

Having said this, it is time to learn some concepts. Here are some links:

- Trees and Graphs, an excellent resource on how to use them and what is is, that make them different. The code examples are focussed on C#.
- Terms from Graph Theory, a wikibook explaining the common idiom that is found in Graph Theory.
- Polygon Overview, from Wikipedia, and Polygons and their properties.
