Delineation is the process of drawing lines or boundaries to show the limits of something, like a piece of land or an area. It's like when you draw a map and mark the borders between different places so people know where one place ends and another begins.
For example, a developer wants to build a shopping center on a large piece of land. Before starting the construction, they hire a surveyor to perform a delineation of the property. The surveyor carefully measures and marks the land's boundaries, making it clear where the shopping center's property begins and ends.

In the world of lands and maps, where borders have their place,
A thing called delineation helps to keep things straight and safe.
It's drawing lines and marking spots, to show where things belong,
So people know the limits, and can build and grow along.
Picture now a developer, who dreams of shopping sprees,
They've got a big and open land, where stores will soon be seen.
Before they start construction, a surveyor comes to town,
To draw the lines, the boundaries, where the land will be renowned.
Delineation, oh so fine, it guides us in our quest,
To know the limits of the land, and do what we do best.
In the world of lands and maps, where borders mark the way,
Delineation leads us true, to build and to convey.
