It is now possible to say that all line junctions will belong to one of four types, as shown in Fig. 40.

Consideration of what such junctions can represent in a view of a polyhedral model leads to the conclusion that only certain labellings of the edges at a junction can arise in images of a real scene. These are illustrated in Fig. 41.

There are far fewer of these than the total number of all possible labellings. Some of the permissible labellings are shown occurring in a scene in Fig. 42.

One immediate deduction that can be made is that T-junctions only occur where one object occludes another, or perhaps an object occludes another part of itself.
