Detailed Description

Concrete class representing polygons.

Note that the OpenGIS simple features polygons consist of one outer ring, and zero or more inner rings. A polygon cannot represent disconnected regions (such as multiple islands in a political body). The OGRMultiPolygon must be used for this.


Member Function Documentation

void OGRPolygon::addRing ( OGRLinearRing poNewRing  ) 

Add a ring to a polygon.

If the polygon has no external ring (it is empty) this will be used as the external ring, otherwise it is used as an internal ring. The passed OGRLinearRing remains the responsibility of the caller (an internal copy is made).

This method has no SFCOM analog.

Parameters:
poNewRing ring to be added to the polygon.

References OGRGeometry::getCoordinateDimension().

Referenced by clone(), and OGRLayer::SetSpatialFilterRect().

void OGRPolygon::addRingDirectly ( OGRLinearRing poNewRing  ) 

Add a ring to a polygon.

If the polygon has no external ring (it is empty) this will be used as the external ring, otherwise it is used as an internal ring. Ownership of the passed ring is assumed by the OGRPolygon, but otherwise this method operates the same as OGRPolygon::AddRing().

This method has no SFCOM analog.

Parameters:
poNewRing ring to be added to the polygon.

OGRErr OGRPolygon::transform ( OGRCoordinateTransformation poCT  )  [virtual]

Apply arbitrary coordinate transformation to geometry.

This method will transform the coordinates of a geometry from their current spatial reference system to a new target spatial reference system. Normally this means reprojecting the vectors, but it could include datum shifts, and changes of units.

Note that this method does not require that the geometry already have a spatial reference system. It will be assumed that they can be treated as having the source spatial reference system of the OGRCoordinateTransformation object, and the actual SRS of the geometry will be ignored. On successful completion the output OGRSpatialReference of the OGRCoordinateTransformation will be assigned to the geometry.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Transform().

Parameters:
poCT the transformation to apply.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code.

Implements OGRGeometry.

References OGRGeometry::assignSpatialReference(), OGRCoordinateTransformation::GetTargetCS(), and OGRLineString::transform().

This method relates to the SFCOM IWks::WkbSize() method.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_WkbSize().

Returns:
size of binary representation in bytes.
