Ok, I will try it, thank you! (Forgot to mention, but I think you had
understand that I'm using 1.60.0 release)

Could you file a ticket with the WKT representations of two polygons where
the union fails?

I create ticket

> WKT can easily be generated with the library using std::cout <<
boost::geometry::wkt(input1), etc

I used boost::geometry::dsv before, WKT return floats with more decimals,
but not enough, points that enclose those "almost zero areas" are the same,
so that area is totally empty, not "almost" (it is just an edge).
Is there any way to print floats in WKT representation with more precision?

I wrote in the ticket, but want to repeat here:
I forgot to mention that despite the fact that I use same initial data
(vehicle path) every program restart, boost geometry union_ makes described
problems not in same places.
So WKT representation in the ticket different from pictures in previous
post. now in last
program run is what it should to be - only one polygon:

Appended mpolygon is
And union result now is

Thanks, Oleg
