[Chimera-users] Enquiry regarding electrostatics calculations of outersurface

Thank you very much for your help.
There are so many vertices on the surface, and I want to caculate the charge values and the area of the positive/negtive charge patches. So my question is, how can we distinguish the coordinates of patches from others? Do vertices nearby have an overlap area according to the calculation using APBS?
Thank you again for your help!
