Yes, for PROJECT 2 "R-tree serialization" you have to implement the
serialization of models implemented in Boost.Geometry. The minimum is
the serialization of model::point in arbitrary dimension and
model::point_xy but you may also implement it for other models, e.g.
model::box, model::segment, etc. And it should be as generic as possible.

I'm not sure if I understand the question correctly. What do you mean by
"how many students do we need"? AFAIK there is no predefined number of
students that have to prepare proposals. What matters is the knowledge
of the student and the quality of the proposal.
