Geometry Decomposition

Build a map of path-based geometry, this is a simple description of the number of parts in an object and their basic structure. Translation and restructuring operations for planar shapes and other hierarchical types require a data model with a record of the underlying relationships between elements. The gibble() function creates a geometry map, a simple record of the underlying structure in path-based hierarchical types. There are methods for the planar shape types in the 'sf' and 'sp' packages.

The goal of gibble was to illustrate how basic topological editing might be provided via the mapedit package.

It also helped to consolidate the sf-decomposition tools in silicate.
