This may have a proper name, if so - let's discuss. If not, let's name it. This is for a web application in C#, so whatever we call it I will start naming as such in my code.
I'm taking GPS data as a collection of n 'Points', each point has latitude (degrees), longitude (degrees), elevation (meters), and datetime(DateTime object). From this, I compute a list of n-1 'Segments.' In each Segment object, I have distance(meters), time(seconds), and velocity(meters/second), effectively taking the derivative between each consecutive point.
Now, I want to n-2 "name this object"s. Each will have acceleration (meters/second/second). A good name for a collection of segments may be 'Path' or 'Track', but this is specifically an object that is two segments only (comprised from three consecutive points), which holds the second derivative value.
I'm leaning toward 'Segue' and this will be the object's name as I flesh out the details. Is there an existing name for this concept, or does anyone have any suggestions?
