I edited How to find the closest segment to a point to add the
nearest tag, which apparently is synonymous with
proximity. I initially wanted to add the
nearest-neighbor tag, but reading the description, thought better of it:
A technique for resampling raster data in which the value of each cell in an output raster is calculated using the value of the nearest cell in an input raster.
However, looking at the tagged questions with that tag, it seems it is being used as I thought it should be: searching for the nearest object(s) to a given object(s). So should the tag definition therefore be modified, and should the proximity & nearest tags be folded into
