Geometry Type of In Situ Data

Good morning forum,

What should be the geometry type of in situ data? Sample in situ data in the forum is shown as polygon and I intend to use point geometry.
Also, if the data should be a polygon geometry what are the advantages over point geometry?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Found the answer in JECAM document regarding guidelines for field data capture. The document can be found here.
