[gdal-dev] OGR functionality to remove holes?

Yes, that is indeed what I meant. Sorry, couldn't explain it more clear.

This forum post shows a screenshot of how GlobalMapper updates the polygons
to remove the holes.


I have already implemented some logic that makes the "seam" to remove the
holes, but that fails on complex polygons with many holes that I created
with GDAL Polygonize. So that's why I was wondering if GDAL itself maybe has
some functionality to get rid of the holes.

But maybe I should more be thinking along the line of splitting the polygon
into chunks, instead of trying to describe it as one polygon with those
