Hi all,

After reading the source and if I did it right, it seems like that 
GEOSGeom_getDimensions_r would always return a 3, judging by 
getDimensions in this file: 
If this is the case am I misunderstanding what GEOSGeom_getDimensions_r 
is actually supposed to do: return 0 for point, 1 for curve, 2 for surface?
Any help is greatly appreciated,

Thank you
