Build a map of path-based geometry, this is a simple description of the number of parts in an object and their basic structure. Translation and restructuring operations for planar shapes and other hierarchical types require a data model with a record of the underlying relationships between elements. The gibble() function creates a geometry map, a simple record of the underlying structure in path-based hierarchical types. There are methods for the planar shape types in the 'sf' and 'sp' packages and for types in the 'trip' and in-development 'silicate' packages.
