Vectors (VEC)

PAMAP databases support points, polylines, and whole polygons. Currently, there is no support for topological polygons.

Each shape has a number of system defined attributes as well user defined attributes. Attributes can be floats, doubles, integers or strings.

New layers can be created in a PAMAP database through GDB. The following keywords in the options string controls the type of layer created:

Point - creates a point layer
Vector - creates a polyline layer
Polygon - creates a polygon layer

The keyword "LEVELxx" crates the layer on a specific level. For example, "Point LEVEL23" would create a point layer on level 23 of the PAMAP database. In the absence of keywords in the options string, the default behavior is to create a polygon layer on the next available level.
