Message Summary

message StreetSection

A section of street limited to one administrative context.

A StreetSection is a collection of segments carrying the same naming information with a common administrative context. The segments of a StreetSection are not necessarily spatially connected. Some possible source of short gaps include unnamed segments in a roundabout, or short interruptions due to an obstacle such as a river or major highway. However, there may not be arbitrarily large gaps between the segments of a StreetSection.

The possibility of gaps implies that a StreetSection may not have a single linear geometry, but may be composed of a number of unconnected linear sections.
