This module implements the vector geometry support of TerraLib.

The vector geometry module of TerraLib is OGC compliant. So, the majority documentation of this module was extracted from the Open Geospatial Consortium specification called Simple Feature Specification - Part 1: Common Architecture. This specification can be accessed at: http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/sfa.

It is important to notice that this module refers to a geometry model to be used in main memory and it doesn't assume any kind of persistence or data storage management.

Basically, the geometry module is responsible for providing:

- The primitive geometric objects like points, lines and polygons;
- Homogeneous and heterogeneous collections of geometries;
- Curved geometries;
- Polyhedral surfaces and Triangular Irregular Networks (TIN);
- Spatial operations: topological relationship tests, metric, set operations;
- Serialization routines for common data formats: WKB, WKT, ...

The main classes/concepts in this module are listed here. The namespace associated to the Geometry module is te::gm. To know more about it, see the te::gm namespace documentation.
