class  GeometryFactory 
Basic implementation of Geometry, constructed and destructed by GeometryFactory.
clone
returns a deep copy of the object. Use GeometryFactory to construct.
Because it is not clear at this time what semantics for spatial analysis methods involving GeometryCollection
s would be useful, GeometryCollection
s are not supported as arguments to binary predicates (other than convexHull
) or the relate
method.
The spatial analysis methods will return the most specific class possible to represent the result. If the result is homogeneous, a Point
, LineString
, or Polygon
will be returned if the result contains a single element; otherwise, a MultiPoint
, MultiLineString
, or MultiPolygon
will be returned. If the result is heterogeneous a GeometryCollection
will be returned.
Because it is not clear at this time what semantics for settheoretic methods involving GeometryCollection
s would be useful, GeometryCollections
are not supported as arguments to the settheoretic methods.
The SFS states that the result of a settheoretic method is the "pointset" result of the usual settheoretic definition of the operation (SFS 3.2.21.1). However, there are sometimes many ways of representing a point set as a Geometry
.
The SFS does not specify an unambiguous representation of a given point set returned from a spatial analysis method. One goal of JTS is to make this specification precise and unambiguous. JTS will use a canonical form for Geometry
s returned from spatial analysis methods. The canonical form is a Geometry
which is simple and noded:
isSimple
. LineString
s. It means that all intersection points on LineString
s will be present as endpoints of LineString
s in the result. This definition implies that nonsimple geometries which are arguments to spatial analysis methods must be subjected to a linedissolve process to ensure that the results are simple.
The results computed by the settheoretic methods may contain constructed points which are not present in the input Geometry. These new points arise from intersections between line segments in the edges of the input Geometry. In the general case it is not possible to represent constructed points exactly. This is due to the fact that the coordinates of an intersection point may contain twice as many bits of precision as the coordinates of the input line segments. In order to represent these constructed points explicitly, JTS must truncate them to fit the PrecisionModel.
Unfortunately, truncating coordinates moves them slightly. Line segments which would not be coincident in the exact result may become coincident in the truncated representation. This in turn leads to "topology collapses" – situations where a computed element has a lower dimension than it would in the exact result.
When JTS detects topology collapses during the computation of spatial analysis methods, it will throw an exception. If possible the exception will report the location of the collapse.
equals(Object) and hashCode are not overridden, so that when two topologically equal Geometries are added to HashMaps and HashSets, they remain distinct. This behaviour is desired in many cases.

virtual 
Returns a buffer region around this Geometry having the given width and with a specified number of segments used to approximate curves.
util::TopologyException  if a robustness error occurs 

virtual 
Computes a buffer area around this geometry having the given width and with a specified accuracy of approximation for circular arcs, and using a specified end cap style.
Buffer area boundaries can contain circular arcs. To represent these arcs using linear geometry they must be approximated with line segments.
The quadrantSegments
argument allows controlling the accuracy of the approximation by specifying the number of line segments used to represent a quadrant of a circle
The end cap style specifies the buffer geometry that will be created at the ends of linestrings. The styles provided are:
distance  the width of the buffer (may be positive, negative or 0) 
quadrantSegments  the number of line segments used to represent a quadrant of a circle 
endCapStyle  the end cap style to use 
util::TopologyException  if a robustness error occurs 

inline 
Tests whether this geometry is covered by the specified geometry.
The coveredBy
predicate has the following equivalent definitions:
[T*F**F***]
or [*TF**F***]
or [**FT*F***]
or [**F*TF***]
g.covers(this)
(coveredBy
is the converse of covers
)If either geometry is empty, the value of this predicate is false
.
This predicate is similar to within, but is more inclusive (i.e. returns true
for more cases).
true
if this Geometry
is covered by g
References covers().
bool geos::geom::Geometry::covers  (  const Geometry *  g  )  const 
Returns true
if this geometry covers the specified geometry.
The covers
predicate has the following equivalent definitions:
T*****FF*
or *T****FF*
or ***T**FF*
or ****T*FF*
g.coveredBy(this)
(covers
is the inverse of coveredBy
)If either geometry is empty, the value of this predicate is false
.
This predicate is similar to contains, but is more inclusive (i.e. returns true
for more cases). In particular, unlike contains
it does not distinguish between points in the boundary and in the interior of geometries. For most situations, covers
should be used in preference to contains
. As an added benefit, covers
is more amenable to optimization, and hence should be more performant.
true
if this Geometry
covers g
Referenced by coveredBy().

virtual 
Tests whether this geometry crosses the specified geometry.
The crosses
predicate has the following equivalent definitions:
[T*T******]
(for P/L, P/A, and L/A situations)[T*****T**]
(for L/P, A/P, and A/L situations)[0********]
(for L/L situations) For any other combination of dimensions this predicate returns false
.The SFS defined this predicate only for P/L, P/A, L/L, and L/A situations. JTS extends the definition to apply to L/P, A/P and A/L situations as well, in order to make the relation symmetric.
true
if the two Geometry
s cross. Returns a Geometry representing the points making up this Geometry that do not make up other.
util::TopologyException  if a robustness error occurs 
util::IllegalArgumentException  if either input is a nonempty GeometryCollection 

virtual 
Tests whether this geometry is disjoint from the specified geometry.
The disjoint
predicate has the following equivalent definitions:
[FF*FF****]
! g.intersects(this)
(disjoint
is the inverse of intersects
)Geometry
s are disjoint

pure virtual 
Returns the boundary, or an empty geometry of appropriate dimension if this Geometry

(In the case of zerodimensional geometries, an empty GeometryCollection is returned.) For a discussion of this function, see the OpenGIS Simple Features Specification. As stated in SFS Section 2.1.13.1, "the boundary of a Geometry is a set of Geometries of the next lower dimension."
