LGEO is a library of LEGO parts modeled by POV-Ray primitives.
When exporting LDraw parts to POV-Ray format, tools like LDView can use an XML file,
LGEO.xml, to substitute dedicated parts by their LGEO implementations. The older tool L3P uses the two files
lg_colors.lst to accomplish much the same thing, as well as to indicate whether to switch over to using Anton Raves' POV-Ray parts instead.
Starting from the original library by Lutz Uhlmann, many people edited and added parts to it. This sadly has led to a tree of variations, not a single collection. This tree is shown here:

┣━━━ LGEO update by Lars C. Hassing (possibly outdated‡)
┣━━━ LGEO update by Owen Burgoyne (may be newer than AIOI†)
┣━━━ LGEO update by Damien Roux (the most recent)
┗━━━ Does anybody know more variants? Please add them here.
* = Lutz's site seems to be offline.
† = Owen's parts are already included with the LDraw All-In-One Installer, but the archive linked to here may contain newer versions.
‡ = Lars's "updated" parts seem to be actually older than the ones included with the AIOI. It may be that you shouldn't use them.
