Create geometry objects from well known text/binary.
Public Static Functions

static OGRErr createFromWkb(const void*, OGRSpatialReference*, OGRGeometry**, size_t = static_cast<size_t>(1), OGRwkbVariant = wkbVariantOldOgc)
Create a geometry object of the appropriate type from its well known binary representation.
Note that if nBytes is passed as zero, no checking can be done on whether the pabyData is sufficient. This can result in a crash if the input data is corrupt. This function returns no indication of the number of bytes from the data source actually used to represent the returned geometry object. Use OGRGeometry::WkbSize() on the returned geometry to establish the number of bytes it required in WKB format.
Also note that this is a static method, and that there is no need to instantiate an OGRGeometryFactory object.
The C function OGR_G_CreateFromWkb() is the same as this method.
 Parameters:
pabyData – pointer to the input BLOB data.
poSR – pointer to the spatial reference to be assigned to the created geometry object. This may be NULL.
ppoReturn – the newly created geometry object will be assigned to the indicated pointer on return. This will be NULL in case of failure. If not NULL, *ppoReturn should be freed with OGRGeometryFactory::destroyGeometry() after use.
nBytes – the number of bytes available in pabyData, or 1 if it isn’t known
eWkbVariant – WKB variant.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if all goes well, otherwise any of OGRERR_NOT_ENOUGH_DATA, OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_GEOMETRY_TYPE, or OGRERR_CORRUPT_DATA may be returned.

static OGRErr createFromWkb(const void *pabyData, OGRSpatialReference*, OGRGeometry**, size_t nSize, OGRwkbVariant eVariant, size_t &nBytesConsumedOut)
Create a geometry object of the appropriate type from its well known binary representation.
Note that if nBytes is passed as zero, no checking can be done on whether the pabyData is sufficient. This can result in a crash if the input data is corrupt. This function returns no indication of the number of bytes from the data source actually used to represent the returned geometry object. Use OGRGeometry::WkbSize() on the returned geometry to establish the number of bytes it required in WKB format.
Also note that this is a static method, and that there is no need to instantiate an OGRGeometryFactory object.
The C function OGR_G_CreateFromWkb() is the same as this method.

static OGRGeometry *createFromGML(const char*)
Create geometry from GML.
This method translates a fragment of GML containing only the geometry portion into a corresponding OGRGeometry. There are many limitations on the forms of GML geometries supported by this parser, but they are too numerous to list here.
The following GML2 elements are parsed : Point, LineString, Polygon, MultiPoint, MultiLineString, MultiPolygon, MultiGeometry.
(OGR >= 1.8.0) The following GML3 elements are parsed : Surface, MultiSurface, PolygonPatch, Triangle, Rectangle, Curve, MultiCurve, LineStringSegment, Arc, Circle, CompositeSurface, OrientableSurface, Solid, Tin, TriangulatedSurface.
Arc and Circle elements are stroked to linestring, by using a 4 degrees step, unless the user has overridden the value with the OGR_ARC_STEPSIZE configuration variable.

 Returns:
a geometry on success, or NULL on error.

static void destroyGeometry(OGRGeometry*)
Destroy geometry object.
Equivalent to invoking delete on a geometry, but it guaranteed to take place within the context of the GDAL/OGR heap.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_DestroyGeometry().
 Parameters:
poGeom – the geometry to deallocate.

static OGRGeometry *createGeometry(OGRwkbGeometryType)
Create an empty geometry of desired type.
This is equivalent to allocating the desired geometry with new, but the allocation is guaranteed to take place in the context of the GDAL/OGR heap.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_CreateGeometry().
 Parameters:
eGeometryType – the type code of the geometry class to be instantiated.
 Returns:
the newly create geometry or NULL on failure. Should be freed with OGRGeometryFactory::destroyGeometry() after use.

static OGRGeometry *forceToPolygon(OGRGeometry*)
Convert to polygon.
Tries to force the provided geometry to be a polygon. This effects a change on multipolygons. Starting with GDAL 2.0, curve polygons or closed curves will be changed to polygons. The passed in geometry is consumed and a new one returned (or potentially the same one).
Note: the resulting polygon may break the Simple Features rules for polygons, for example when converting from a multipart multipolygon.
 Parameters:
poGeom – the input geometry  ownership is passed to the method.
 Returns:
new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *forceToLineString(OGRGeometry*, bool bOnlyInOrder = true)
Convert to line string.
Tries to force the provided geometry to be a line string. This nominally effects a change on multilinestrings. In GDAL 2.0, for polygons or curvepolygons that have a single exterior ring, it will return the ring. For circular strings or compound curves, it will return an approximated line string.
The passed in geometry is consumed and a new one returned (or potentially the same one).
 Parameters:
poGeom – the input geometry  ownership is passed to the method.
bOnlyInOrder – flag that, if set to FALSE, indicate that the order of points in a linestring might be reversed if it enables to match the extremity of another linestring. If set to TRUE, the start of a linestring must match the end of another linestring.
 Returns:
new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *forceToMultiPolygon(OGRGeometry*)
Convert to multipolygon.
Tries to force the provided geometry to be a multipolygon. Currently this just effects a change on polygons. The passed in geometry is consumed and a new one returned (or potentially the same one).
 Returns:
new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *forceToMultiPoint(OGRGeometry*)
Convert to multipoint.
Tries to force the provided geometry to be a multipoint. Currently this just effects a change on points or collection of points. The passed in geometry is consumed and a new one returned (or potentially the same one).
 Returns:
new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *forceToMultiLineString(OGRGeometry*)
Convert to multilinestring.
Tries to force the provided geometry to be a multilinestring.
linestrings are placed in a multilinestring.
circularstrings and compoundcurves will be approximated and placed in a multilinestring.
geometry collections will be converted to multilinestring if they only contain linestrings.
polygons will be changed to a collection of linestrings (one per ring).
curvepolygons will be approximated and changed to a collection of ( linestrings (one per ring).
The passed in geometry is consumed and a new one returned (or potentially the same one).
 Returns:
new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *forceTo(OGRGeometry *poGeom, OGRwkbGeometryType eTargetType, const char *const *papszOptions = nullptr)
Convert to another geometry type.
Tries to force the provided geometry to the specified geometry type.
It can promote ‘single’ geometry type to their corresponding collection type (see OGR_GT_GetCollection()) or the reverse. nonlinear geometry type to their corresponding linear geometry type (see OGR_GT_GetLinear()), by possibly approximating circular arcs they may contain. Regarding conversion from linear geometry types to curve geometry types, only “wrapping” will be done. No attempt to retrieve potential circular arcs by deapproximating stroking will be done. For that, OGRGeometry::getCurveGeometry() can be used.
The passed in geometry is consumed and a new one returned (or potentially the same one).
 Since
GDAL 2.0
 Parameters:
poGeom – the input geometry  ownership is passed to the method.
eTargetType – target output geometry type.
papszOptions – options as a nullterminated list of strings or NULL.
 Returns:
new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *removeLowerDimensionSubGeoms(const OGRGeometry *poGeom)
Remove subgeometries from a geometry collection that do not have the maximum topological dimensionality of the collection.
This is typically to be used as a cleanup phase after running OGRGeometry::MakeValid()
For example, MakeValid() on a polygon can return a geometry collection of polygons and linestrings. Calling this method will return either a polygon or multipolygon by dropping those linestrings.
On a nongeometry collection, this will return a clone of the passed geometry.
 Since
GDAL 3.1.0
 Parameters:
poGeom – input geometry
 Returns:
a new geometry.

static OGRGeometry *organizePolygons(OGRGeometry **papoPolygons, int nPolygonCount, int *pbResultValidGeometry, const char **papszOptions = nullptr)
Organize polygons based on geometries.
Analyse a set of rings (passed as simple polygons), and based on a geometric analysis convert them into a polygon with inner rings, (or a MultiPolygon if dealing with more than one polygon) that follow the OGC Simple Feature specification.
All the input geometries must be OGRPolygon/OGRCurvePolygon with only a valid exterior ring (at least 4 points) and no interior rings.
The passed in geometries become the responsibility of the method, but the papoPolygons “pointer array” remains owned by the caller.
For faster computation, a polygon is considered to be inside another one if a single point of its external ring is included into the other one. (unless ‘OGR_DEBUG_ORGANIZE_POLYGONS’ configuration option is set to TRUE. In that case, a slower algorithm that tests exact topological relationships is used if GEOS is available.)
In cases where a big number of polygons is passed to this function, the default processing may be really slow. You can skip the processing by adding METHOD=SKIP to the option list (the result of the function will be a multipolygon with all polygons as toplevel polygons) or only make it analyze counterclockwise polygons by adding METHOD=ONLY_CCW to the option list if you can assume that the outline of holes is counterclockwise defined (this is the convention for example in shapefiles, Personal Geodatabases or File Geodatabases).
For FileGDB, in most cases, but not always, a faster method than ONLY_CCW can be used. It is CCW_INNER_JUST_AFTER_CW_OUTER. When using it, inner rings are assumed to be counterclockwise oriented, and following immediately the outer ring (clockwise oriented) that they belong to. If that assumption is not met, an inner ring could be attached to the wrong outer ring, so this method must be used with care.
If the
OGR_ORGANIZE_POLYGONS
configuration option is defined, its value will override the value of the METHOD option of papszOptions (useful to modify the behavior of the shapefile driver) Parameters:
papoPolygons – array of geometry pointers  should all be OGRPolygons. Ownership of the geometries is passed, but not of the array itself.
nPolygonCount – number of items in papoPolygons
pbIsValidGeometry – value will be set TRUE if result is valid or FALSE otherwise.
papszOptions – a list of strings for passing options
 Returns:
a single resulting geometry (either OGRPolygon, OGRCurvePolygon, OGRMultiPolygon, OGRMultiSurface or OGRGeometryCollection). Returns a POLYGON EMPTY in the case of nPolygonCount being 0.

static bool haveGEOS()
Test if GEOS enabled.
This static method returns TRUE if GEOS support is built into OGR, otherwise it returns FALSE.
 Returns:
TRUE if available, otherwise FALSE.

static OGRGeometry *transformWithOptions(const OGRGeometry *poSrcGeom, OGRCoordinateTransformation *poCT, char **papszOptions, const TransformWithOptionsCache &cache = TransformWithOptionsCache())

 Parameters:
poSrcGeom – source geometry
poCT – coordinate transformation object, or NULL.
papszOptions – options. Including WRAPDATELINE=YES and DATELINEOFFSET=.
cache – Cache. May increase performance if persisted between invocations
 Returns:
(new) transformed geometry.

static OGRGeometry *approximateArcAngles(double dfX, double dfY, double dfZ, double dfPrimaryRadius, double dfSecondaryAxis, double dfRotation, double dfStartAngle, double dfEndAngle, double dfMaxAngleStepSizeDegrees, const bool bUseMaxGap = false)
Stroke arc to linestring.
Stroke an arc of a circle to a linestring based on a center point, radius, start angle and end angle, all angles in degrees.
If the dfMaxAngleStepSizeDegrees is zero, then a default value will be used. This is currently 4 degrees unless the user has overridden the value with the OGR_ARC_STEPSIZE configuration variable.
If the OGR_ARC_MAX_GAP configuration variable is set, the straightline distance between adjacent pairs of interpolated points will be limited to the specified distance. If the distance between a pair of points exceeds this maximum, additional points are interpolated between the two points.

static int GetCurveParameters(double x0, double y0, double x1, double y1, double x2, double y2, double &R, double &cx, double &cy, double &alpha0, double &alpha1, double &alpha2)
Returns the parameter of an arc circle.
Angles are return in radians, with trigonometic convention (counter clock wise)
 Since
GDAL 2.0
 Parameters:
x0 – x of first point
y0 – y of first point
x1 – x of intermediate point
y1 – y of intermediate point
x2 – x of final point
y2 – y of final point
R – radius (output)
cx – x of arc center (output)
cy – y of arc center (output)
alpha0 – angle between center and first point, in radians (output)
alpha1 – angle between center and intermediate point, in radians (output)
alpha2 – angle between center and final point, in radians (output)
 Returns:
TRUE if the points are not aligned and define an arc circle.

static OGRLineString *curveToLineString(double x0, double y0, double z0, double x1, double y1, double z1, double x2, double y2, double z2, int bHasZ, double dfMaxAngleStepSizeDegrees, const char *const *papszOptions = nullptr)
Converts an arc circle into an approximate line string.
The arc circle is defined by a first point, an intermediate point and a final point.
The provided dfMaxAngleStepSizeDegrees is a hint. The discretization algorithm may pick a slightly different value.
So as to avoid gaps when rendering curve polygons that share common arcs, this method is guaranteed to return a line with reversed vertex if called with inverted first and final point, and identical intermediate point.
 Since
GDAL 2.0
 Parameters:
x0 – x of first point
y0 – y of first point
z0 – z of first point
x1 – x of intermediate point
y1 – y of intermediate point
z1 – z of intermediate point
x2 – x of final point
y2 – y of final point
z2 – z of final point
bHasZ – TRUE if z must be taken into account
dfMaxAngleStepSizeDegrees – the largest step in degrees along the arc, zero to use the default setting.
papszOptions – options as a nullterminated list of strings or NULL. Recognized options:
ADD_INTERMEDIATE_POINT=STEALTH/YES/NO (Default to STEALTH). Determine if and how the intermediate point must be output in the linestring. If set to STEALTH, no explicit intermediate point is added but its properties are encoded in low significant bits of intermediate points and OGRGeometryFactory::curveFromLineString() can decode them. This is the best compromise for roundtripping in OGR and better results with PostGIS ST_LineToCurve(). If set to YES, the intermediate point is explicitly added to the linestring. If set to NO, the intermediate point is not explicitly added.
 Returns:
the converted geometry (ownership to caller).

static OGRCurve *curveFromLineString(const OGRLineString *poLS, const char *const *papszOptions = nullptr)
Try to convert a linestring approximating curves into a curve.
This method can return a COMPOUNDCURVE, a CIRCULARSTRING or a LINESTRING.
This method is the reverse of curveFromLineString().
 Since
GDAL 2.0
 Parameters:
poLS – handle to the geometry to convert.
papszOptions – options as a nullterminated list of strings. Unused for now. Must be set to NULL.
 Returns:
the converted geometry (ownership to caller).

virtual void assignSpatialReference(OGRSpatialReference *poSR)
Assign spatial reference to this object.
Any existing spatial reference is replaced, but under no circumstances does this result in the object being reprojected. It is just changing the interpretation of the existing geometry. Note that assigning a spatial reference increments the reference count on the OGRSpatialReference, but does not copy it.
Starting with GDAL 2.3, this will also assign the spatial reference to potential subgeometries of the geometry (OGRGeometryCollection, OGRCurvePolygon/OGRPolygon, OGRCompoundCurve, OGRPolyhedralSurface and their derived classes).
This is similar to the SFCOM IGeometry::put_SpatialReference() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AssignSpatialReference().

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.

OGRErr transformTo(OGRSpatialReference *poSR)
Transform geometry to new spatial reference system.
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.
This method will only work if the geometry already has an assigned spatial reference system, and if it is transformable to the target coordinate system.
Because this method requires internal creation and initialization of an OGRCoordinateTransformation object it is significantly more expensive to use this method to transform many geometries than it is to create the OGRCoordinateTransformation in advance, and call transform() with that transformation. This method exists primarily for convenience when only transforming a single geometry.

 Parameters:
poSR – spatial reference system to transform to.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or an error code.

virtual OGRBoolean Equals(const OGRGeometry*) const override
Returns TRUE if two geometries are equivalent.
This operation implements the SQL/MM ST_OrderingEquals() operation.
The comparison is done in a structural way, that is to say that the geometry types must be identical, as well as the number and ordering of subgeometries and vertices. Or equivalently, two geometries are considered equal by this method if their WKT/WKB representation is equal. Note: this must be distinguished for equality in a spatial way (which is the purpose of the ST_Equals() operation).
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Equals().
 Returns:
TRUE if equivalent or FALSE otherwise.

virtual OGRBoolean Intersects(const OGRGeometry*) const override
Do these features intersect?
Determines whether two geometries intersect. If GEOS is enabled, then this is done in rigorous fashion otherwise TRUE is returned if the envelopes (bounding boxes) of the two geometries overlap.
The poOtherGeom argument may be safely NULL, but in this case the method will always return TRUE. That is, a NULL geometry is treated as being everywhere.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Intersects().
 Parameters:
poOtherGeom – the other geometry to test against.
 Returns:
TRUE if the geometries intersect, otherwise FALSE.

virtual OGRBoolean Within(const OGRGeometry*) const override
Test for containment.
Tests if actual geometry object is within the passed geometry.
Geometry validity is not checked. In case you are unsure of the validity of the input geometries, call IsValid() before, otherwise the result might be wrong.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Within().
This method is built on the GEOS library, check it for the definition of the geometry operation. If OGR is built without the GEOS library, this method will always fail, issuing a CPLE_NotSupported error.
 Parameters:
poOtherGeom – the geometry to compare to this geometry.
 Returns:
TRUE if poOtherGeom is within this geometry, otherwise FALSE.

virtual const char *getGeometryName() const override

Note that the geometry type may include the 2.5D flag. To get a 2D flattened version of the geometry type apply the wkbFlatten() macro to the return result.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_GetGeometryType().
 Returns:
the geometry type code.

virtual OGRErr transform(OGRCoordinateTransformation *poCT) override
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.

OGRLineString()
OGRLinearRing class

class OGRLinearRing : public OGRLineString
Concrete representation of a closed ring.
This class is functionally equivalent to an OGRLineString, but has a separate identity to maintain alignment with the OpenGIS simple feature data model. It exists to serve as a component of an OGRPolygon.
The OGRLinearRing has no corresponding free standing well known binary representation, so importFromWkb() and exportToWkb() will not actually work. There is a nonstandard GDAL WKT representation though.
Because OGRLinearRing is not a “proper” free standing simple features object, it cannot be directly used on a feature via SetGeometry(), and cannot generally be used with GEOS for operations like Intersects(). Instead the polygon should be used, or the OGRLinearRing should be converted to an OGRLineString for such operations.
Note: this class exists in SFSQL 1.2, but not in ISO SQL/MM Part 3.

virtual OGRBoolean hasCurveGeometry(int bLookForNonLinear = FALSE) const override
Returns if this geometry is or has curve geometry.
Returns if a geometry is, contains or may contain a CIRCULARSTRING, COMPOUNDCURVE, CURVEPOLYGON, MULTICURVE or MULTISURFACE.
If bLookForNonLinear is set to TRUE, it will be actually looked if the geometry or its subgeometries are or contain a nonlinear geometry in them. In which case, if the method returns TRUE, it means that getLinearGeometry() would return an approximate version of the geometry. Otherwise, getLinearGeometry() would do a conversion, but with just converting container type, like COMPOUNDCURVE > LINESTRING, MULTICURVE > MULTILINESTRING or MULTISURFACE > MULTIPOLYGON, resulting in a “lossless” conversion.

Returns TRUE if two geometries are equivalent.
This operation implements the SQL/MM ST_OrderingEquals() operation.
The comparison is done in a structural way, that is to say that the geometry types must be identical, as well as the number and ordering of subgeometries and vertices. Or equivalently, two geometries are considered equal by this method if their WKT/WKB representation is equal. Note: this must be distinguished for equality in a spatial way (which is the purpose of the ST_Equals() operation).
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Equals().
 Returns:
TRUE if equivalent or FALSE otherwise.

virtual OGRBoolean Intersects(const OGRGeometry*) const override
Do these features intersect?
Determines whether two geometries intersect. If GEOS is enabled, then this is done in rigorous fashion otherwise TRUE is returned if the envelopes (bounding boxes) of the two geometries overlap.
The poOtherGeom argument may be safely NULL, but in this case the method will always return TRUE. That is, a NULL geometry is treated as being everywhere.

 Parameters:
poOtherGeom – the other geometry to test against.
 Returns:
TRUE if the geometries intersect, otherwise FALSE.

virtual OGRBoolean Contains(const OGRGeometry*) const override

This method is built on the GEOS library, check it for the definition of the geometry operation. If OGR is built without the GEOS library, this method will always fail, issuing a CPLE_NotSupported error.
 Parameters:
poOtherGeom – the geometry to compare to this geometry.
 Returns:
TRUE if poOtherGeom contains this geometry, otherwise FALSE.

virtual void setCoordinateDimension(int nDimension) override

 Deprecated:
use set3D() or setMeasured().
 Parameters:
nNewDimension – New coordinate dimension value, either 2 or 3.

virtual void set3D(OGRBoolean bIs3D) override

 Parameters:
bIsMeasured – Should the geometry have a M dimension, either TRUE or FALSE.

virtual void assignSpatialReference(OGRSpatialReference *poSR) override
Assign spatial reference to this object.
Any existing spatial reference is replaced, but under no circumstances does this result in the object being reprojected. It is just changing the interpretation of the existing geometry. Note that assigning a spatial reference increments the reference count on the OGRSpatialReference, but does not copy it.
Starting with GDAL 2.3, this will also assign the spatial reference to potential subgeometries of the geometry (OGRGeometryCollection, OGRCurvePolygon/OGRPolygon, OGRCompoundCurve, OGRPolyhedralSurface and their derived classes).
This is similar to the SFCOM IGeometry::put_SpatialReference() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AssignSpatialReference().
 Parameters:
poSR – new spatial reference system to apply.

 Returns:
pointer to interior ring. May be NULL.

OGRCurve *stealExteriorRingCurve()
“Steal” reference to external ring.
After the call to that function, only call to stealInteriorRing() or destruction of the OGRCurvePolygon is valid. Other operations may crash.
 Returns:
pointer to external ring. May be NULL if the OGRCurvePolygon is empty.

OGRErr removeRing(int iIndex, bool bDelete = true)
Remove a geometry from the container.
Removing a geometry will cause the geometry count to drop by one, and all “higher” geometries will shuffle down one in index.
There is no SFCOM analog to this method.
 Parameters:
iIndex – the index of the geometry to delete. A value of 1 is a special flag meaning that all geometries should be removed.

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.

virtual void flattenTo2D() override

This function is the same as the C function OGR_G_Segmentize()
 Parameters:
dfMaxLength – the maximum distance between 2 points after segmentization

virtual OGRBoolean hasCurveGeometry(int bLookForNonLinear = FALSE) const override
Returns if this geometry is or has curve geometry.
Returns if a geometry is, contains or may contain a CIRCULARSTRING, COMPOUNDCURVE, CURVEPOLYGON, MULTICURVE or MULTISURFACE.
If bLookForNonLinear is set to TRUE, it will be actually looked if the geometry or its subgeometries are or contain a nonlinear geometry in them. In which case, if the method returns TRUE, it means that getLinearGeometry() would return an approximate version of the geometry. Otherwise, getLinearGeometry() would do a conversion, but with just converting container type, like COMPOUNDCURVE > LINESTRING, MULTICURVE > MULTILINESTRING or MULTISURFACE > MULTIPOLYGON, resulting in a “lossless” conversion.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_HasCurveGeometry().

This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AddGeometry().
 Parameters:
poNewGeom – geometry to add to the container.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if successful, or OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_GEOMETRY_TYPE if the geometry type is illegal for the type of geometry container.

virtual OGRErr addGeometryDirectly(OGRGeometry*)

Some subclasses of OGRGeometryCollection restrict the types of geometry that can be added, and may return an error. Ownership of the passed geometry is taken by the container rather than cloning as addGeometry() does.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AddGeometryDirectly().
There is no SFCOM analog to this method.
 Parameters:

There is no SFCOM analog to this method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_RemoveGeometry().
 Parameters:
iGeom – the index of the geometry to delete. A value of 1 is a special flag meaning that all geometries should be removed.
bDelete – if TRUE the geometry will be deallocated, otherwise it will not. The default is TRUE as the container is considered to own the geometries in it.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if successful, or OGRERR_FAILURE if the index is out of range.

virtual void assignSpatialReference(OGRSpatialReference *poSR) override
Assign spatial reference to this object.
Any existing spatial reference is replaced, but under no circumstances does this result in the object being reprojected. It is just changing the interpretation of the existing geometry. Note that assigning a spatial reference increments the reference count on the OGRSpatialReference, but does not copy it.
Starting with GDAL 2.3, this will also assign the spatial reference to potential subgeometries of the geometry (OGRGeometryCollection, OGRCurvePolygon/OGRPolygon, OGRCompoundCurve, OGRPolyhedralSurface and their derived classes).
This is similar to the SFCOM IGeometry::put_SpatialReference() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AssignSpatialReference().
 Parameters:
poSR – new spatial reference system to apply.

virtual void closeRings() override
Force rings to be closed.

This method corresponds to the SFCOM IGeometry::GetDimension() method. It indicates the dimension of the object, but does not indicate the dimension of the underlying space (as indicated by OGRGeometry::getCoordinateDimension()).
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_GetDimension().
 Returns:
0 for points, 1 for lines and 2 for surfaces.

virtual void empty() override
Clear geometry information.
This restores the geometry to its initial state after construction, and before assignment of actual geometry.
This method relates to the SFCOM IGeometry::Empty() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Empty().

virtual OGRPolyhedralSurface *clone() const override
Make a copy of this object.
This method relates to the SFCOM IGeometry::clone() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Clone().
 Returns:
a new object instance with the same geometry, and spatial reference system as the original.

virtual void getEnvelope(OGREnvelope *psEnvelope) const override
Computes and returns the bounding envelope for this geometry in the passed psEnvelope structure.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_GetEnvelope().
 Parameters:
psEnvelope – the structure in which to place the results.

virtual void getEnvelope(OGREnvelope3D *psEnvelope) const override
Computes and returns the bounding envelope (3D) for this geometry in the passed psEnvelope structure.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_GetEnvelope3D().
 Since
OGR 1.9.0
 Parameters:
psEnvelope – the structure in which to place the results.

virtual void flattenTo2D() override
Convert geometry to strictly 2D.
In a sense this converts all Z coordinates to 0.0.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_FlattenTo2D().

virtual OGRErr transform(OGRCoordinateTransformation*) override
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.

virtual OGRBoolean Equals(const OGRGeometry*) const override
Returns TRUE if two geometries are equivalent.
This operation implements the SQL/MM ST_OrderingEquals() operation.
The comparison is done in a structural way, that is to say that the geometry types must be identical, as well as the number and ordering of subgeometries and vertices. Or equivalently, two geometries are considered equal by this method if their WKT/WKB representation is equal. Note: this must be distinguished for equality in a spatial way (which is the purpose of the ST_Equals() operation).
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_Equals().
 Returns:
TRUE if equivalent or FALSE otherwise.

virtual double get_Area() const override
Returns the area enclosed.
This method is built on the SFCGAL library, check it for the definition of the geometry operation. If OGR is built without the SFCGAL library, this method will always return 1.0
 Returns:
area enclosed by the PolyhedralSurface

virtual OGRErr PointOnSurface(OGRPoint*) const override
This method relates to the SFCOM ISurface::get_PointOnSurface() method.
NOTE: Only implemented when GEOS included in build.
 Parameters:
poPoint – point to be set with an internal point.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if it succeeds or OGRERR_FAILURE otherwise.

virtual OGRBoolean hasCurveGeometry(int bLookForNonLinear = FALSE) const override
Returns if this geometry is or has curve geometry.
Returns if a geometry is, contains or may contain a CIRCULARSTRING, COMPOUNDCURVE, CURVEPOLYGON, MULTICURVE or MULTISURFACE.
If bLookForNonLinear is set to TRUE, it will be actually looked if the geometry or its subgeometries are or contain a nonlinear geometry in them. In which case, if the method returns TRUE, it means that getLinearGeometry() would return an approximate version of the geometry. Otherwise, getLinearGeometry() would do a conversion, but with just converting container type, like COMPOUNDCURVE > LINESTRING, MULTICURVE > MULTILINESTRING or MULTISURFACE > MULTIPOLYGON, resulting in a “lossless” conversion.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_HasCurveGeometry().
 Since
GDAL 2.0
 Parameters:
bLookForNonLinear – set it to TRUE to check if the geometry is or contains a CIRCULARSTRING.
 Returns:
TRUE if this geometry is or has curve geometry.

virtual OGRErr addGeometry(const OGRGeometry*)
Add a new geometry to a collection.
Only a POLYGON can be added to a POLYHEDRALSURFACE.
 Returns:
OGRErr OGRERR_NONE if the polygon is successfully added

OGRErr addGeometryDirectly(OGRGeometry *poNewGeom)
Add a geometry directly to the container.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AddGeometryDirectly().
There is no SFCOM analog to this method.
 Parameters:
poNewGeom – geometry to add to the container.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if successful, or OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_GEOMETRY_TYPE if the geometry type is illegal for the type of geometry container.

int getNumGeometries() const
Fetch number of geometries in PolyhedralSurface.
 Returns:
count of children geometries. May be zero.

OGRPolygon *getGeometryRef(int i)
Fetch geometry from container.
This method returns a pointer to an geometry within the container. The returned geometry remains owned by the container, and should not be modified. The pointer is only valid until the next change to the geometry container. Use IGeometry::clone() to make a copy.
 Parameters:
i – the index of the geometry to fetch, between 0 and getNumGeometries()  1.
 Returns:
pointer to requested geometry.

const OGRPolygon *getGeometryRef(int i) const
Fetch geometry from container.
This method returns a pointer to an geometry within the container. The returned geometry remains owned by the container, and should not be modified. The pointer is only valid until the next change to the geometry container. Use IGeometry::clone() to make a copy.
 Parameters:
i – the index of the geometry to fetch, between 0 and getNumGeometries()  1.
 Returns:
pointer to requested geometry.

virtual OGRBoolean IsEmpty() const override
Checks if the PolyhedralSurface is empty.
 Returns:
TRUE if the PolyhedralSurface is empty, FALSE otherwise

virtual void setCoordinateDimension(int nDimension) override
Set the coordinate dimension.
This method sets the explicit coordinate dimension. Setting the coordinate dimension of a geometry to 2 should zero out any existing Z values. This will also remove the M dimension if present before this call.
 Parameters:
nNewDimension – New coordinate dimension value, either 2 or 3.

virtual void set3D(OGRBoolean bIs3D) override
Set the type as 3D geometry.

virtual void setMeasured(OGRBoolean bIsMeasured) override
Set the type as Measured.

virtual void swapXY() override
Swap x and y coordinates.

OGRErr removeGeometry(int iIndex, int bDelete = TRUE)
Remove a geometry from the container.
Removing a geometry will cause the geometry count to drop by one, and all “higher” geometries will shuffle down one in index.
 Parameters:
iGeom – the index of the geometry to delete. A value of 1 is a special flag meaning that all geometries should be removed.
bDelete – if TRUE the geometry will be deallocated, otherwise it will not. The default is TRUE as the container is considered to own the geometries in it.
 Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if successful, or OGRERR_FAILURE if the index is out of range.

inline virtual void accept(IOGRGeometryVisitor *visitor) override
Accept a visitor.

inline virtual void accept(IOGRConstGeometryVisitor *visitor) const override
Accept a visitor.

virtual void assignSpatialReference(OGRSpatialReference *poSR) override
Assign spatial reference to this object.
Any existing spatial reference is replaced, but under no circumstances does this result in the object being reprojected. It is just changing the interpretation of the existing geometry. Note that assigning a spatial reference increments the reference count on the OGRSpatialReference, but does not copy it.
Starting with GDAL 2.3, this will also assign the spatial reference to potential subgeometries of the geometry (OGRGeometryCollection, OGRCurvePolygon/OGRPolygon, OGRCompoundCurve, OGRPolyhedralSurface and their derived classes).
This is similar to the SFCOM IGeometry::put_SpatialReference() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AssignSpatialReference().
 Parameters:
poSR – new spatial reference system to apply.
