Class DefaultResolution

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Resolution

    public class DefaultResolution
    extends ISOMetadata
    implements Resolution
    Level of detail expressed as a scale factor or a ground distance. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
    MD_Resolution   ├─angular­Distance…… Angular sampling measure.   ├─distance……………………… Ground sample distance.   ├─equivalent­Scale…… Level of detail expressed as the scale of a comparable hardcopy map or chart.   │   └─denominator…… The number below the line in a vulgar fraction.   ├─level­Of­Detail………… Brief textual description of the spatial resolution of the resource.   └─vertical……………………… Vertical sampling distance.
    ISO 19115 defines Resolution as an union (in the C/C++ sense): only one of the properties in this class can be set to a non-empty value. Setting any property to a non-empty value discard all the other ones. See the constructor javadoc for information about which property has precedence on copy operations.
    Limitations
    • Instances of this class are not synchronized for multi-threading. Synchronization, if needed, is caller's responsibility.
    • Serialized objects of this class are not guaranteed to be compatible with future Apache SIS releases. Serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Apache SIS. For long term storage, use XML instead.

    • Constructor Detail

      • DefaultResolution

        public DefaultResolution()
        Constructs an initially empty resolution.
      • DefaultResolution

        public DefaultResolution​(RepresentativeFraction scale)
        Creates a new resolution initialized to the given scale.
        Parameters:
        scale - the scale, or null if none.

      • DefaultResolution

        public DefaultResolution​(Resolution object)
        Constructs a new instance initialized with the values from the specified metadata object. This is a shallow copy constructor, since the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.

        If more than one of the equivalent scale, distance, vertical, angular distance and level of detail are specified, then the first of those values is taken and the other values are silently discarded.

        Note on properties validation: This constructor does not verify the property values of the given metadata (e.g. whether it contains unexpected negative values). This is because invalid metadata exist in practice, and verifying their validity in this copy constructor is often too late. Note that this is not the only hole, as invalid metadata instances can also be obtained by unmarshalling an invalid XML document.
        Parameters:
        object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

    • Method Detail

      • castOrCopy

        public static DefaultResolution castOrCopy​(Resolution object)
        Returns a SIS metadata implementation with the values of the given arbitrary implementation. This method performs the first applicable action in the following choices:
        • If the given object is null, then this method returns null.
        • Otherwise if the given object is already an instance of Default­Resolution, then it is returned unchanged.
        • Otherwise a new Default­Resolution instance is created using the copy constructor and returned. Note that this is a shallow copy operation, since the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
        Parameters:
        object - the object to get as a SIS implementation, or null if none.
        Returns:
        a SIS implementation containing the values of the given object (may be the given object itself), or null if the argument was null.
      • getEquivalentScale

        public RepresentativeFraction getEquivalentScale()
        Returns the level of detail expressed as the scale of a comparable hardcopy map or chart.
        Specified by:
        get­Equivalent­Scale in interface Resolution
        Returns:
        level of detail expressed as the scale of a comparable hardcopy, or null.
      • setEquivalentScale

        public void setEquivalentScale​(RepresentativeFraction newValue)
        Sets the level of detail expressed as the scale of a comparable hardcopy map or chart.
        Effect on other properties
        If and only if the new­Value is non-null, then this method automatically discards all other properties.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new equivalent scale.
      • setDistance

        public void setDistance​(Double newValue)
        Sets the ground sample distance.
        Effect on other properties
        If and only if the new­Value is non-null, then this method automatically discards all other properties.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new distance, or null.
        Throws:
        Illegal­Argument­Exception - if the given value is NaN, zero or negative.
      • setVertical

        public void setVertical​(Double newValue)
        Sets the vertical sampling distance.
        Effect on other properties
        If and only if the new­Value is non-null, then this method automatically discards all other properties.
        Parameters:
