Point in space, usually a point in a mesh model. A vertex can be both a 3D or 2D point. Not to confuse with vector allthough conversion can be done. A vertex usually contains more than just a position. It can also contain color, mapping coordinates, normals and other properties.

One vertex - Many vertices.

Typical vertex definition in C:

struct vertex

{

float x;

float y;

float z;

float nx;

float ny;

float nz;

int color;

float u;

float v;

}

Three or more vertices makes a polygon, if connected.

This model has over 100k vertices. Transforming each vertex is nothing you do by hand!
