This is my string .

If this what you are given by an unchangable external source or can you get something a bit better? One object per line would make the problem pretty simple, with no regex required.

How do I traverse through it and form 3 dicts of Point , Polygon and
Linestring containing the co-ordinates ?

Dicts map keys to values. I do not see any key values above. It looks like you really want three sets.
