Class AbstractSpatialRepresentation

    • Constructor Detail

      • AbstractSpatialRepresentation

        public AbstractSpatialRepresentation()
        Constructs an initially empty spatial representation.
      • AbstractSpatialRepresentation

        public AbstractSpatialRepresentation​(SpatialRepresentation 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.
        Parameters:
        object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

    • Method Detail

      • castOrCopy

        public static AbstractSpatialRepresentation castOrCopy​(SpatialRepresentation 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 an instance of Vector­Spatial­Representation or Grid­Spatial­Representation, then this method delegates to the cast­Or­Copy(…) method of the corresponding SIS subclass. Note that if the given object implements more than one of the above-cited interfaces, then the cast­Or­Copy(…) method to be used is unspecified.
        • Otherwise if the given object is already an instance of Abstract­Spatial­Representation, then it is returned unchanged.
        • Otherwise a new Abstract­Spatial­Representation 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.
