**VectorStatisticalUnitGeometry** | -- Name --
Vector statistical unit geometry
A geometrical representation for vector statistical units.
Vector statistical units can have several representations depending on the context they are used for. It is adviced to produce at least one reference geometry.
EXAMPLE1: A vector statistical units may be represented both by an area and a point geometry. Such point can be the center of gravity or a label location.
EXAMPLE2: For mapping, different generalised representations of vector statistical units are required. These geometries depend on the visualisation scale. | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |
