Coordinate System (CS) definitions as the set of coordinate system axes that spans the coordinate space.
An explanation for this package is provided in the OpenGIS® javadoc.
The remaining discussion on this page is specific to the SIS implementation.
The root class in this package is AbstractCS
.
Various subclasses are defined for various kinds of mathematical rules that determine
how coordinates are associated to quantities such as angles and distances.
Those SIS subclasses provide additional methods that are not part of OGC/ISO specifications:
CoordinateSystems
utility class
with static methods for estimating an angle between two axes, determining the change of axis directions
and units between two coordinate systems, or filtering axes. Since:
