Class DefaultIndividual

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object

@UML(identifier="CI_Individual", specification=ISO_19115) public class DefaultIndividual extends AbstractParty
Information about the party if the party is an individual.
Note on International Standard versions
This class is derived from a new type defined in the ISO 19115 international standard published in 2014, while GeoAPI 3.0 is based on the version published in 2003. Consequently this implementation class does not yet implement a GeoAPI interface, but is expected to do so after the next GeoAPI releases. When the interface will become available, all references to this implementation class in Apache SIS will be replaced be references to the Individual interface.


  • 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.
