Enum CommonCRS.Vertical

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<Common­CRS​.Vertical>
    Enclosing class:
    CommonCRS

    public static enum CommonCRS.Vertical
    extends Enum<CommonCRS.Vertical>
    Frequently-used vertical CRS and datum that are guaranteed to be available in SIS. Methods in this enumeration are shortcuts for object definitions in the EPSG database. If there is no EPSG database available, or if the query failed, or if there is no EPSG definition for an object, then Vertical fallback on hard-coded values. Consequently, those methods never return null.

    Referencing objects are cached after creation. Invoking the same method on the same Vertical instance twice will return the same Identified­Object instance, unless the internal cache has been cleared (e.g. the application is running in a container environment and some modules have been installed or uninstalled).

    Example: the following code fetches a vertical Coordinate Reference System for heights above the Mean Sea Level (MSL):

    VerticalCRS crs = CommonCRS.Vertical.MEAN_SEA_LEVEL.crs();
    Below is an alphabetical list of object names available in this enumeration:
    Geodetic objects accessible by enumeration constants
    Name or alias Object type Enumeration value
    Barometric altitude CRS, Datum BAROMETRIC
    Mean Sea Level Datum MEAN_SEA_LEVEL
    Mean Sea Level depth CRS DEPTH
    Mean Sea Level height CRS MEAN_SEA_LEVEL
    NAVD88 height CRS NAVD88
    North American Vertical Datum 1988 Datum NAVD88
    Other surface CRS, Datum OTHER_SURFACE
    Note: We do not provide a GEOIDAL value because its definition depends on the realization epoch. For example EGM84, EGM96 and EGM2008 are applications of three different geoid models on the WGS 84 ellipsoid. The MEAN_SEA_LEVEL value can be used instead as an approximation of geoidal heights.

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • BAROMETRIC

        public static final CommonCRS.Vertical BAROMETRIC
        Height measured by atmospheric pressure in hectopascals (hPa). Hectopascals are the units of measurement used by the worldwide meteorological community. The datum is not specific to any location or epoch.

      • MEAN_SEA_LEVEL

        public static final CommonCRS.Vertical MEAN_SEA_LEVEL
        Height measured above the Mean Sea Level (MSL) in metres. Can be used as an approximation of geoidal heights (height measured above an equipotential surface), except that MSL are not specific to any location or epoch.

      • ELLIPSOIDAL

        public static final CommonCRS.Vertical ELLIPSOIDAL
        Height measured along the normal to the ellipsoid used in the definition of horizontal datum. The unit of measurement is metres.

        Ellipsoidal height is not part of ISO 19111 international standard. Such vertical CRS is usually not recommended since ellipsoidal heights make little sense without their (latitude, longitude) locations. The ISO specification defines instead three-dimensional Geographic­CRS for that reason. Users are encouraged to avoid this orphan ellipsoidal height as much as possible.

    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static CommonCRS.Vertical[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (CommonCRS.Vertical c : CommonCRS.Vertical.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static CommonCRS.Vertical valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        Illegal­Argument­Exception - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        Null­Pointer­Exception - if the argument is null
      • crs

        public VerticalCRS crs()
