Strip or Isolated : for each column, one foundation(i.e; 1 - 1).
Combined : for two or more columns, one foundation(>=2-1).
Raft or Mat : for two or more columns, one foundation(>=2-1).
Strap : between two footings one beam is provided.

Difference b/w combined and raft is:

If the area of excavated soil >= 50% of total area of construction site,
Then go for "RAFT" footing else combined footing.
