v17 v18 26 26 In general, GGL is dedicated to programmers who need to write programs that involve computations of a geometric nature. We hope to provide Generic Geometry Library interesting to developers of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_information_system geographic information systems], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomatics geomatics] and any solutions of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spatial spatial] nature, and even to game developers. 27 27 28 == What is aconcept? == 28 == What concept? == 29 29 30 == Why MultiPoint, MultiLine and MultiPolygon live in separated module? == 30 The term ''concept'' is often used in GGL documentation. It is one of fundamental terms. 31 32 == Why multipoint, multiline and multipolygon live in separated module? == 31 33 32 34 Multiple geometry types are collection geometry classes introduced in [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/ OpenGIS Simple Features] architecture and as such they are specific to geospatial applications. Because [wiki:FAQ#WhatisGGL GGL aims to be general purpose geometry library], it's been decided to maintain multiple geometry types in separate module. So, developers who are not interested in those elements of GGL can leave them out automatically.
