The tool `MapGeometryToMeshSurface`

adjusts the z-coordinates of geometric points from a given geometry file `my_geometry.gml`

such that they are located on the surface of a given mesh `my_mesh.vtu`

and returns an updated geometry file `my_mapped_geometry.gml`

.

*MW: does the tool add points if necessary?*

*MW: what happens, if the geometry is spreading above the boundary of the mesh or not even close to the mesh?*

`MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m [my_mesh.vtu] -i [my_geometry.gml] -o [my_mapped_geometry.gml]`

Often, the mesh resolution and the resolution of the geometric objects like polylines are different.

*MW: so, what happens then?*

In the first figure such a situation is depicted. In the second figure the result of the application of the algorithm is shown.

Usage for the example:

`MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m SubsurfaceMesh.vtu -i TestPolyline.gml -o TestMappedPolyline.gml`
