Embedded Feature Class - definition(s)

embedded feature class - [3D GIS] A multipoint feature class embedded into a terrain dataset. When a feature class is embedded, it is incorporated directly into the terrain pyramid and the terrain becomes the sole container of the data. Embedded feature classes can be used to reduce the amount of disk space required by mass point data such as lidar.
