General Info
Geo circle
A GeoCircle is a GeoShape representing a circular geographic area. As it is a GeoShape it provides the simple textual property 'circle', but also allows the combination of postalCode alongside geoRadius. The center of the circle can be indicated via the 'geoMidpoint' property, or more approximately using 'address', 'postalCode'.

PropertyType(s)Description and Constraints
schema:additionalTypexsd:anyURIAn additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in.

schema:mainEntityOfPageschema:CreativeWork, xsd:anyURIIndicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See [background notes](/docs/datamodel.html#mainEntityBackground) for details.
