This chapter and Chapter 2.2 form the main guide to understanding and using the plane‐group and space‐group tables in Parts 6 and 7. Chapter 2.1 displays, with the help of an extensive synoptic table, the classification of the 17 plane groups and 230 space groups into geometric crystal classes, Bravais lattices, crystal systems and crystal families. This is followed by a characterization of the conventional crystallographic coordinate systems.
