Jurisdiction geometry data structure

Although the jurisdiction geography could have been integrated directly in the jurisdiction resource, this data can easily take several kilobytes or even megabytes for complex countries/states, so we include it as a separate resource.

FieldTypeDescription
geographyGeospatial

Mandatory

Boundaries of the jurisdiction; a Polygon or MultiPolygon.
