Vector topology cleaning
Q: How can I patch to fitting area maps with have been digitized separately and correct the topology? I observe that the shared polygon boundaries do not perfectly match... I need clean topology.
A: You can usefor this.
Tools to consider:
- the threshold (in map units) should be very small

Q: How about self-intersecting lines and boundaries?
A: In the GRASS topological model self-intersecting lines are allowed, self-intersecting boundaries are not. Self-intersecting lines are ok e.g. formodules, e.g. to represent a bridge of a secondary road over a highway.
Note: There are some modules that do not like self-intersecting lines, e.g withproblems are expected.
