In ECDIS a two dimensional spatial object. A face is a continuous area defined by a loop of one or more edges which bound it. A face may contain interior holes, defined by closing loops of edges. These interior boundaries must be within the outer boundary. No boundary may cross itself or touch itself other than at the beginning/end node. None of the boundaries may touch or cross any other boundary. Faces are defined only in the full topology data structure.
