By default the algorithm uses the strict OGC definition of polygon validity, where a polygon is marked as invalid if a self-intersecting ring causes an interior hole. If the "Ignore ring self intersections" option is checked, then this rule will be ignored and a more lenient validity check will be performed.

The GEOS method is faster and performs better on larger geometries, but is limited to only returning the first error encountered in a geometry. The QGIS method will be slower but reports all errors encountered in the geometry, not just the first.

This algorithm calculates the total climb and descent along line geometries.
