A form of perspective in which the lines of manmade objects (roads, buildings) are at right angles to the picture plane and converge toward a vanishing point.
The point on the horizon where the straight lines of linear perspective converge. The two sides of a road appear to come together at the vanishing point.
In mathematics, two lines or curves are orthogonal if they are perpendicular or at right angles at the point of intersection.
