This is a call to discuss the proposed RFC 64: Triangle, Polyhedral surface and TIN
As of now, the OGRGeometry class (the base class from which all the subtypes are derived) is
limited to OGRCompoundCurve, OGRCircularString, OGRLinearRing, OGRMultiLineString,
OGRMultiPoint, OGRMultiPolygon, OGRMultiCurve, OGRSimpleCurve, OGRCurvePolygon and
This RFC addresses the addition of the following new geometries in OGRGeometry:
* Triangle - A subset of polygons, the fundamental difference is that it is made of 3 nodes
only (actually 4, with the last one being the repetition of the first one) and ONLY ONE
exterior boundary and NO interior polygons.
* PolyhedralSurface - A 3D figure made exclusively of Polygons.
* TriangulatedSurface - A subset of PolyhedralSurface; a 3D figure which consists exclusively
I've rebased and extended the work done by Avyav during last GSoc on top of current trunk,
where it passes our continuous integration tests. I think we should consider merging it soon
as it can easily rot if kept longer in a branch (the refresh from my previous branch dating to
end of August was rather painful)
