Best use of Geometry Types

Mar 5, 2013 at 1:45 PM
I am having some difficulty understanding the Geometry types in DotSpatial.

What is the difference between a LineString and MultiLineString? I understand that a MultiLineString is a collection of LineStrings, but if I have a set of Coordinates that forms a Line, what would the difference be between the two types?

The same for Polygon and LineRing, is the LineRing just the outer Line of a Polygon? And can the LineRing be used to create, for instance the outline of a Province/State/Country?
