virtual 
Add a geometry to the container.
Some subclasses of OGRGeometryCollection restrict the types of geometry that can be added, and may return an error. The passed geometry is cloned to make an internal copy.
There is no SFCOM analog to this method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_AddGeometry().
poNewGeom  geometry to add to the container. 

virtual 
Add a geometry directly to the container.
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.
poNewGeom  geometry to add to the container. 

overridevirtual 
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().
poSR  new spatial reference system to apply. 
Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.

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().
Implements OGRGeometry.

Implements OGRGeometry.
Reimplemented in OGRMultiCurve, OGRMultiPoint, and OGRMultiSurface.

This method relates to the SFCOM IGeometryCollection::get_Geometry() method.
i  the index of the geometry to fetch, between 0 and getNumGeometries()  1. 
const OGRGeometry * OGRGeometryCollection::getGeometryRef  (  int  i  )  const 
Fetch geometry from container.
This method returns a pointer to a 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.
This method relates to the SFCOM IGeometryCollection::get_Geometry() method.
i  the index of the geometry to fetch, between 0 and getNumGeometries()  1. 

overridevirtual

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().
Implements OGRGeometry.
Reimplemented in OGRMultiLineString, OGRMultiCurve, OGRMultiPoint, OGRMultiPolygon, and OGRMultiSurface.

overridevirtual 
Return, possibly approximate, noncurve version of this geometry.
Returns a geometry that has no CIRCULARSTRING, COMPOUNDCURVE, CURVEPOLYGON, MULTICURVE or MULTISURFACE in it, by approximating curve geometries.
The ownership of the returned geometry belongs to the caller.
The reverse method is OGRGeometry::getCurveGeometry().
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_GetLinearGeometry().
dfMaxAngleStepSizeDegrees  the largest step in degrees along the arc, zero to use the default setting. 
papszOptions  options as a nullterminated list of strings. See OGRGeometryFactory::curveToLineString() for valid options. 
Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.
int OGRGeometryCollection::getNumGeometries  (  )  const 
Fetch number of geometries in container.
This method relates to the SFCOM IGeometryCollect::get_NumGeometries() method.

overridevirtual 
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().
bLookForNonLinear  set it to TRUE to check if the geometry is or contains a CIRCULARSTRING. 
Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.
Reimplemented in OGRMultiLineString, OGRMultiCurve, OGRMultiPoint, OGRMultiPolygon, and OGRMultiSurface.

overridevirtual

The object must have already been instantiated as the correct derived type of geometry object to match the binaries type. This method is used by the OGRGeometryFactory class, but not normally called by application code.
This method relates to the SFCOM IWks::ImportFromWKB() method.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_ImportFromWkb().
pabyData  the binary input data. 
nSize  the size of pabyData in bytes, or 1 if not known. 
eWkbVariant  if wkbVariantPostGIS1, special interpretation is done for curve geometries code 
nBytesConsumedOut  output parameter. Number of bytes consumed.

Assignment operator.
Note: before GDAL 2.1, only the default implementation of the operator existed, which could be unsafe to use.

virtual 
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.
This method is the same as the C function OGR_G_RemoveGeometry().
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. 

overridevirtual 
Modify the geometry such it has no segment longer then the given distance.

Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.

overridevirtual 
Add or remove the Z coordinate dimension.

bIs3D  Should the geometry have a Z dimension, either TRUE or FALSE. 
Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.

overridevirtual 
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. Setting the dimension of a geometry collection, a compound curve, a polygon, etc. will affect the children geometries. This will also remove the M dimension if present before this call.
nNewDimension  New coordinate dimension value, either 2 or 3. 
Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.

overridevirtual 
Add or remove the M coordinate dimension.
This method adds or removes the explicit M coordinate dimension. Removing the M coordinate dimension of a geometry will remove any existing M values. Adding the M dimension to a geometry collection, a compound curve, a polygon, etc. will affect the children geometries.

Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.

overridevirtual 
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().
poCT  the transformation to apply. 
Implements OGRGeometry.

overridevirtual

Implements OGRGeometry.
