+<h3>Multiple geometry columns</h3>
+This example shows how to work with data which contain multiple
+geometry per feature. The number of geometry columns per feature can
+be checked by <em><a href="v.external.html">v.external</a></em>
+together with <b>-t</b> flag.

+In our example layer "Okresy" has three geometry columns:
+"DefinicniBod", "OriginalniHranice" and
+"GeneralizovanaHranice". By default <em>v.in.ogr</em> reads data from
+all three geometry columns. The user can specify desired geometry
+column by <b>geometry</b> option, in this case the module will read
+geometry only from the specified geometry column. In the example bellow,
+the output vector map will contain only geometry saved in
+"OriginalniHranice" geometry column.
