What does nav_msgs/GridCells represent?

"an array of cells in a 2D grid" isn't a particularly clear description.

  1. What defines the spacing of the grid?
  2. Is the array one or two dimensional? So many ros types use a 1D array to represent a 2D grid, so the type alone is not sufficient documentation
  3. What does cells[i] represent?
  4. Do all cells have to be XY-planar?
  5. Do all cells have to be planar at all?
  6. Do the cells even have to align to a grid?
  7. is cell_width measured from the center or the corner?
