Resolution

The technical equivalent of sharpness and the maximum amount of picture information that can be resolved in a reproduced image. Resolution is dependant on the number of pixels and the production tools used such as lenses, film processing, scanning and telecine transfer.

Resolution

The amount of pixels an image exists of. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be. A VGA resolution (640 x480) is ideal for small print-outs and computer use. XGA (1024 x 768) and SXGA-resolutions (1280 x 1024) will offer even more detail. A UXGA resolution of 1600 x 1200 approaches photo quality

[electron density] Resolution in terms of electron density is a measure of the resolvability in the electron density map of a molecule. In X-ray crystallography, resolution is the highest resolvable peak in the diffraction pattern. While cryo-electron microscopy is a frequency space comparison of two halves of the data, which strives to cor...

Resolution

A measure of the ability to detect quantities. High resolution implies a high degree of discrimination but has no implication as to accuracy e.g. In a collection of data in which the coordinates are rounded to the nearest metre, resolution will be 1 metre, but the accuracy may be +/-5 metres or worse.
