COMMENTS

This data is used to specify the height of hexagonally packed cylinders in a triangle with open boundaries. Three cylinders that touch each other define a "triple" and water can be retained between these cylinders. A257594, A258445 and A259052 give a classification for such spaces. The links below ignore the inter-cylinder space retention and only consider the water retention above solid cylinders. - Craig Knecht, Jul 16 2015
