Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.0.2

A Dimension defines a measurement for the distance between two Locations. An acceptable tolerance can be specified additionally. If the Locations are not located on adjacent topology-elements it is possible to specify a Path for the dimension along which the measurement must be taken.
