Open Metadata is plain and verbose. By storing geometry in such a way opens up doors beyond traditional use and may help educate or inspire further analysis of what it takes to serialise geometric primitives into plain data.


  • points
  • edges
  • faces
  • cache = multiple points?
  • points = multiple point

3d geometry is defined by a set of points, connected by edges, connected by faces. Moving geometry then is defined by the same three (3) collections, with additional points.
