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.
