In a data set with no parts touching their neighbours, the only normalization of the vertices will be the removal of the duplicated closing coordinate on any polygon ring, and on any self-intersecting case within a single path.

PATH()$path should always have columns object_ path_ subobject ncoords_

Value

a PATH model, with tables 'object', 'path', 'path_link_vertex' and 'vertex'
