What is the definition of geometric description?

Hello there,

I am asked to "give a geometric description of a " in some metric. The trouble is that I do not know what list of requirements a description has to satisfy to be a satisfactory "geometric description".

Will you kindly give me the definition of «geometric description»?

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
Marius

Shape, position, orientation, size. "An ellipse, centre the origin" would be a geometric description.
