What is this type of description called?

I have a data set with n number of points. I connect the points with lines and measure their lengths and now have n1 lengths. I measure the angles between the lengths and now have n2 angles. I use these lengths and angles to describe a set of points. I can use the lengths and angles to distinguish between two sets of points. I wish to find out more about this type of analysis, but do not know what it is called. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Jim
