represents a list of geographic objects to be treated as a single object for certain operations.
- Geographic functions that can be used with GeoGroup include GeoDistance and GeoNearest.
- geoobjects is a list that may contain geo position specifications; Entity objects with domains such as "Country", "City", and "AdministrativeDivision"; entities that have natural geographic positions; EntityClass objects of these types; or other geo groups.
- GeoGroup allows distance computations to be performed efficiently.

The default behavior of the geo style "Image" is to apply the image as a texture to individual members of an entity class:
Show the result of using the "Image" style on an entity class:
GeoGroup can be used to apply the "Image" geo style to a geographic group as a whole:
