What is the difference between contiguous and conterminous?
this one curtesy of badmoon36:
According to Wikipedia, Alaskans and Hawaiians don't typically use either phrase, instead preferring "the mainland", "stateside", "outside" or "the lower 48" (these last two exclusive to AK). Wiki also claims the phrase "continental United States" originated around 1898, when the US acquired Hawaii and other off-shore territories.
Proper linguists could argue against this. "Continental" is easily defined, but "contiguous" is often mistaken. According to Dictionary.com, "contiguous" has a few definitions, and not only means "touching" or "in contact" (as in real estate), but also "near" or "in close proximity without actually touching." This then, when applied to this issue, could include Alaska, depending on whether you regard a little less than 500 miles as "close proximity".
To complicate things further, there is also the "conterminous United States". "Conterminous" means having common borders, the definition often erroneously attributed to "contiguous".
Differentiate between contiguous and non contiguous memory
contiguous is "separated in space" and continuous is "separated in time"
in contiguous allocation overhead during execution of a program. in non contiguous allocation address translation is performed during execution of a program..
it is allocation strategy using variable size portions
In a contiguous memory allocation there is no overhead during execution of a program. In a non contiguous memory allocation address translation is performed during execution.
Russia's empire was territorially contiguous.
The Contiguous US is the lower 48 (all connected, situated between Canada and Mexico). The Continental US is the lower 48 and Alaska (US on the North American continent)
in continuous memory aallocation method no overhaead for trhe execution of progtram. and in non continuous memory aalocation there is overhead on the execution of program
Dfference between contiguous and noncontiguous 1) In contiguous allocation there is no overhead during execution of a program. 1)In noncontiguous allocation address translation is performed during execution 2)Contiguous memory allocates single area of memory 2)Noncontigious memory allocates several memory areas - one memory are to each component of a process
In contiguous allocation there is no overhead during execution of a program. In noncontiguous allocation address translation is performed during execution Contiguous memory allocates single area of memory Noncontigious memory allocates several memory areas - one memory are to each component of a process
Contiguous: Immediately adjacent. For example, contiguous sectors on a disk are sectors that come one after the other. Frequently, a file stored on disk can become fragmented, which means that it is stored on non-contiguous sectors. taken from http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/C/contiguous.HTML So one could assume that the difference is that contiguous files are files that are stored immediately adjacent from one another (together) and non-contiguous files are not stored adjacently hence are separated or scattered.

A domain is a portion of the overall DNS namespace. A zone, however, can contain multiple contiguous domains.
What is A major difference between the colonial empire of Russia on the one hand and Britain and France on the other?
Russia's empire is territorially contiguous.
"Contiguous" means the part that's all connected, all parts physically touching each other. The part of the US in which you could walk or drive to anywhere in it without leaving the country. Alaska isn't contiguous because you can't walk there without going through Canada. Hawaii isn't contiguous because you can't walk there at all. The "contiguous US" is the "lower 48" states.
New Zealand is an island nation in the southern hemisphere; France is one of the contiguous nations on the continent of Europe.
China's total area is __________________ the conterminous United States.
Contiguous is a word that is used normally when objects are spatially adjacent and Continuous is a word that is normally used when events are adjacent in time. This usage is probably the reason why arrays are "contiguously" allocated and not "continuously" allocated. On the other hand, a function f(t) is "continuous" and not "contiguous".
This situation is conterminous
An adjacent parcel may be a contiguous parcel -- but not vice-versa. Adjacent (or abutting) parcels share common boundaries or property lines; while a contiguous parcel may not share common boundaries but is deemed part of a larger area where the boundaries of the individual parcels that comprise that larger area abut each other.
Alaska Based on the question asking which of the CONTIGUOUS ([adj] connecting without a break; within a common boundary; "the 48 conterminous states"; "the contiguous 48 states" )48 states extends farthest north the answer would be Minnesota (49° 23' 4" north latitude) over Maine (47° 28' north latitude). Alaska is not, by definition, a part of the CONTIGUOUS (or lower) 48 states, neither is Hawaii. If the question had asked what is the most northern… Read More
Linked list consists of data nodes each pointing to next in the list .An array consist of contiguous chunk memory of predetermined size
The word is contiguous. The 48 contiguous states are the states located on the North America continent that are between Canada and Mexico.
The contiguous U.S.is made from the lower 48 states plus the District of Columbia. The continental U.S. contains the contiguous U.S. plus Alaska. Remember it this way. Alaska is part of the North America continent, hence it is part of the continental U.S. Generally, you don't say contiguous 48, just contiguous U.S. The lower 48 states do not include the District of Columbia, since it is not a state. So, there are three separate terms… Read More
The contiguous U.S.is made from the lower forty-eght states plus the District of Columbia. The continental U.S. contains the contiguous U.S. plus Alaska. Since the District of Columbia is not a state, when you speak of the lower forty-eight, you are not including D.C. Remember it this way. Alaska is part of the North America continent, hence it is part of the continental U.S. Generally, you don't say contiguous 48, just contiguous U.S. See Sources… Read More
There is a difference of 3 hours and 51 minutes between the local mean times of the easternmost and westernmost points in the contiguous 48 states of the U.S.
Basically there are no big difference, both tools work by selecting similar colors. Main difference is that Quick selection tool detects automatically edges based on similarity with color you clicked first and Magic Wand is selecting contiguous (adjacent) or non contiguous colors based on similarity of colors and settings chosen in Options bar (tool settings appears below menus for almost every tool when is active).

None. They're contiguous.
At 8891 km, the border between Canada and the USA is the longest between any two countries, but a major section of that border (with Alaska) is not contiguous with the rest. The longest contiguous section of border between two countries in the world is between Russia and Kazakhstan, at 6846 km.
Contiguous means touching. Alaska is not one of the contiguous states.
Six time zones are present in the 48 Contiguous US States and all Canadian provinces. Four are shared between the two countries while two are present only in Canada. If you want to include Alaska, then there are eight time zones (Alaskan and Aleutian). And if including Hawaii, the number stays at eight since Hawaii is on the same time as the Aleutian Islands.
The contiguous united States is that part of the Us that can be reached by land transportation without leaving the US. It is also called the "Lower -48" and consists of the first 48 states of the Union. States outside the contiguous Us are Alaska and Hawaii. The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and the several other territories and affiliated commonwealths are also outside the Contiguous US.
Contiguous means States touch. Hawaii has an ocean between them and the mainland of the US. Alaska has Canada separating it from the mainland of the US. So, Hawaii and Alaska are non-contiguous States, but are still part of the nation.

My research shows that usage of "contiguous to" has greatly exceeded "contiguous with" for several centuries until relatively recently. Usage of "contiguous to" still exceeds "contiguous with," but by a very narrow margin. Try plugging these into a Google n-gram and you'll see the usage history since 1800.
'Most' is a rubber word. It means different things to different people at different times. ALL of the contiguous 48 states falls between 24.52° and 48.48° North latitude.
A pointer is a variable that may contain a memory address, or NULL (zero). An array is collection of data, usually residing in a contiguous block of memory, where every element is accessed as an offset from the beginning of the array.
"is my disease contiguous
Contiguous because everyone wanted to play it see it etc it spread all across usa and the world
Because Canada lies in between the State of Alaska and the contiguous States.
48 states are contiguous. Two states, Alaska and Hawaii are non-contiguous.
Hawaii is in the US. If you mean distance between the CONTIGUOUS US and Hawaii, the answer would be approximately 2500 miles
