Description Details


Path-based geometry decomposition to data frame.


The goal of gibble is to provide a straightforward map of path-based data structures. Paths are connected linear sequences of coordinates, otherwise known as lines. Structured spatial data includes objects composed of paths, which are islands, holes within island, lines, and points. Polygons require an extra grouping level subobject to ensure holes are nested within their island, but this is ignored for other types.

Sequential inear structures are not optimal for many operations when working with spatial data, and gibble provides a simple bridge between existing paths and tools to decompose them to primitives.
