C.10.11 Graphic Group Module

Graphic Group Module provides the label and description for the logical associations made by the Graphic Group ID (0070,0295) of graphic objects.

The grouping concept used in the Graphic Group Module differs from the grouping concept used in the Graphic Layer Module. Graphic Layer Module addresses the rendering order by using the Graphic Layer Order (0070,0062), which specifies which annotations are rendered first. The Graphic Group Module is used to specify which annotations belong together and shall be handled together(e.g., rotate, move) independent of the Graphic Layer to which they are assigned.
