Class Geometry

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.lang.Cloneable

    public class Geometry
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements java.lang.Cloneable
    Abstract base class for all geometry classes.

    The Geometry class is a binding for the C++ OGRGeometry class.

    Some spatial analysis methods require that OGR is built on the GEOS library to work properly. The precise meaning of methods that describe spatial relationships between geometries is described in the SFCOM, or other simple features interface specifications, like "OpenGIS(R) Implementation Specification for Geographic information - Simple feature access - Part 1: Common architecture" (OGC 06-103r3)

        public Geometry​(int eGeometryType,
                        java.lang.String wkt,
                        byte[] wkb,

        Deprecated.
        Use referenced methods instead.
        Create a new geometry.

        The geometry can be instantiated by 4 different and exclusive way:

        • By specifying the geometry type (ogr.wkbPoint, etc..)
        • By specifying the well known text representation (wkt)
        • By specifying the well known binary representation (wkb)
        • By specifying the GML representation

        You should rather use either the Geometry(int) constructor, or the static methods like Geometry.CreateFromWkt(), Geometry.CreateFromWbt() or Geometry.CreateFromGML().

        Parameters:
        eGeometryType - the type code of the geometry class to be instantiated.
        wkt - the well known text representation
        wkb - the well known binary representation
        gml - the GML representation
        See Also:

      • Geometry

        public Geometry​(int eGeometryType)
        Create an empty geometry of desired type.

        The type may be one of ogr.wkbPoint, etc..

        Parameters:

      • delete

        public void delete()
        Delete a geometry.

        Calling this method is not required as normal garbage collection will reclaim associated resources when the object goes out of scope. Otherwise calling delete() explicitly will help release resources sooner. Don't call any method on a deleted object !

        public java.lang.String ExportToGML​(java.util.Vector options)
        Convert a geometry into GML format.

        The GML geometry is expressed directly in terms of GML basic data types assuming the this is available in the gml namespace. The supported options in OGR 1.8.0 are :

        • FORMAT=GML3. Otherwise it will default to GML 2.1.2 output.
        • GML3_LINESTRING_ELEMENT=curve. (Only valid for FORMAT=GML3) To use gml:Curve element for linestrings. Otherwise gml:LineString will be used .

In the case, if the SRS is a geographic SRS without explicit AXIS order, but that the same SRS authority code imported with ImportFromEPSGA() should be treated as lat/long, then the function will take care of coordinate order swapping. If set to NO, SRS with EPSG authority will be written with the "EPSG:" prefix, even if they are in lat/long order.

      • AddGeometryDirectly

        public int AddGeometryDirectly​(Geometry other)
        Add a geometry directly to the container.

        For a polygon, other must be a linearring. If the polygon is empty, the first added subgeometry will be the exterior ring. The next ones will be the interior rings.

        Parameters:
        other - geometry to add to the container.
        Returns:
        0 if successful, or throws RuntimeException (or an error code if DontUseExceptions() has been called) if the geometry type is illegal for the type of geometry container.
      • AddGeometry

        public int AddGeometry​(Geometry other)
        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.

        For a polygon, other must be a linearring. If the polygon is empty, the first added subgeometry will be the exterior ring. The next ones will be the interior rings.

        Parameters:
        other - geometry to add to the container.

        0 if successful, or throws RuntimeException (or an error code if DontUseExceptions() has been called) if the geometry type is illegal for the type of geometry container.

      • TransformTo

        public int TransformTo​(SpatialReference srs)
        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 CoordinateTransformation object it is significantly more expensive to use this method to transform many geometries than it is to create the CoordinateTransformation in advance, and call transform() with that transformation. This method exists primarily for convenience when only transforming a single geometry.

        Parameters:
        srs - spatial reference system to transform to.
        Returns:
        0 on success. Otherwise throws a RuntimeException (or an error code if DontUseExceptions() has been called).
      • Transform

        public int Transform​(CoordinateTransformation ct)
        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 CoordinateTransformation object, and the actual SRS of the geometry will be ignored. On successful completion the output OGRSpatialReference of the CoordinateTransformation will be assigned to the geometry.

        Parameters:
        ct - the transformation to apply.
        Returns:
        0 on success. Otherwise throws a RuntimeException (or an error code if DontUseExceptions() has been called).

        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 SpatialReference, but does not copy it. This is similar to the SFCOM IGeometry::put_SpatialReference() method.

        Parameters:
        srs - new spatial reference system to apply.
      • CloseRings

        public void CloseRings()

        public Geometry Centroid()
