New schemes for digitizing regions and arcs are introduced. It is then shown that under these schemes, Sklansky's definition of digital convexity is equivalent to other definitions. Digital convex polygons of n vertices are defined and characterized in terms of geometric properties of digital line segments. Also, a linear time algorithm is presented that, given a digital convex region, determines the smallest integer n such that the region is a digital convex n-gon.
