Class CoordinateFormat

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Localized

public class CoordinateFormat extends CompoundFormat<DirectPosition>
Formats spatiotemporal coordinates using number, angle and date formats inferred from the coordinate system. The format for each coordinate is inferred from the coordinate system units using the following rules:
  • Coordinate values in angular units are formatted as angles using Angle­Format.
  • Coordinate values in temporal units are formatted as dates using Date­Format.
  • Other values are formatted as numbers using Number­Format followed by the unit symbol formatted by Unit­Format.
The format can be controlled by invoking the apply­Pattern(Class, String) public method, or by overriding the Compound­Format​.create­Format(Class) protected method.

Coordinate reference system

Coordinate­Format uses the Direct­Position​.get­Coordinate­Reference­System() value for determining how to format each coordinate value. If the position does not specify a coordinate reference system, then the default CRS is assumed. If no default CRS has been specified, then all coordinates are formatted as decimal numbers.

Coordinate­Format does not transform the given coordinates in a unique CRS. If the coordinates need to be formatted in a specific CRS, then the caller should transform the position before to format it.

  • Method Details

    • getSeparator

      public String getSeparator()
      Returns the separator between each coordinate (number, angle or date). The default value is a single space.
      Returns:
      the current coordinate separator.

      public void setSeparator(String separator)
      Sets the separator between each coordinate. The default value is a single space.
      Parameters:
      separator - the new coordinate separator.
    • getDefaultCRS

      public CoordinateReferenceSystem getDefaultCRS()
      Returns the coordinate reference system to use if no CRS is explicitly associated to a given Direct­Position. This CRS determines the type of format to use for each coordinate (number, angle or date) and the number of fraction digits to use for achieving a specified precision on ground.
      Returns:
      the default coordinate reference system, or null if none.
    • setDefaultCRS

      public void setDefaultCRS(CoordinateReferenceSystem crs)
      Sets the coordinate reference system to use if no CRS is explicitly associated to a given Direct­Position. This CRS is only a default; positions given in another CRS are not automatically transformed to that CRS before formatting.
      Parameters:
      crs - the default coordinate reference system, or null if none.
    • getPrecisions

      public double[] getPrecisions()
      Returns the precisions at which coordinate values are formatted in each dimension. For example if coordinates in dimension i are formatted with two fraction digits, then the precision reported in precisions[i] will be 0.01. If the precision can not be determined for some dimensions, the corresponding values in the returned array will be 0.

      The values returned by this method are not necessarily equal to the values specified in the last call to set­Precisions(double...). For example if a precision of 0.03 has been requested for a dimension whose coordinates are formatted as decimal numbers, then the actual precision returned by this method for that dimension will be 0.01.

      Returns:
      precision of coordinate values in each dimension (may contain 0 values for unknown precisions).
      Since:
      1.1
      See Also:
    • setPrecisions

      public void setPrecisions(double... precisions)
      Sets the desired precisions at which to format coordinate values in each dimension. For example if precisions[i] is 0.05, then coordinates in dimension i will be shown with two fraction digits when formatted as decimal numbers, or with "D°MM" pattern when formatted as angles.

      This precision does not have a direct relationship to the precision on the ground. For example a precision of 0.01 could be one centimeter or 10 meters, depending if the units of measurement in that dimension is meter or kilometer. For a precision related to the ground, use set­Ground­Precision(Quantity) instead.

      If any value in the given array is 0 or Double​.Na­N, then there is a choice: if set­Ground­Precision(Quantity) has been invoked, the precision specified to that method will apply (if possible). Otherwise an implementation-specific default precision is used. A typical use case is to use set­Ground­Precision(Quantity) for specifying an horizontal precision in "real world" units and to use this set­Precisions(double...) method for adjusting the precision of the vertical axis only.

      Parameters:
      precisions - desired precision at which to format coordinate values in each dimension (may have 0 or Double​.Na­N values for unspecified precisions in some of those dimensions), or null for restoring the default values.

    • setPrecision

      @Deprecated public void setPrecision(double resolution, Unit<?> unit)
      Deprecated.
      Parameters:
      resolution - the desired resolution.
      unit - unit of the desired resolution.
      Since:
      1.0
    • setGroundPrecision

      public void setGroundPrecision(Quantity<?> precision)
      Adjusts the number of fraction digits to show in coordinates for achieving the given precision. The Number­Format and Angle­Format are configured for coordinates expressed in the coordinate reference system of the position to format. The given resolution will be converted to the units used by coordinate system axes. For example if a 10 metres resolution is specified but the default CRS axes use kilometres, then this method converts the resolution to 0.01 kilometre and uses that value for inferring that coordinates should be formatted with 2 fraction digits. If the resolution is specified in an angular units such as degrees, this method uses the ellipsoid authalic radius for computing an equivalent resolution in linear units. For example if the ellipsoid of default CRS is WGS84, then this method considers a resolution of 1 second of angle as equivalent to a resolution of about 31 meters. Conversions work also in the opposite direction (from linear to angular units) and are also used for choosing which angle fields (degrees, minutes or seconds) to show.

      If both set­Precisions(double...) and set­Ground­Precision(Quantity) are used, then the values specified with set­Precisions(…) have precedence and this ground precision is used only as a fallback. A typical use case is to specify the ground precision for horizontal dimensions, then to specify a different precision dz for the vertical axis only with set­Precisions(Na­N, Na­N, dz).

      Parameters:
      precision - the desired precision together with its linear or angular unit.

    • applyPattern

      public boolean applyPattern(Class<?> valueType, String pattern)
      Sets the pattern for number, angle or date fields. The pattern syntax depends on the value­Type argument:
      • If value­Type is Number​.class, then the pattern syntax shall be as described in the Decimal­Format class. This pattern may be used for any coordinate to be formatted as plain number, for example in Cartesian coordinate system.
      • If value­Type is Angle​.class, then the pattern syntax shall be as described in the Angle­Format class. This pattern may be used for any coordinate to be formatted as latitude or longitude, for example in ellipsoidal coordinate system.
      • If value­Type is Date​.class, then the pattern syntax shall be as described in the Simple­Date­Format class. This pattern may be used for any coordinate to be formatted as date and time, for example in time coordinate system.
      Parameters:
      value­Type - the base type of coordinate values to parse and format: Number​.class, Angle​.class or Date​.class.
      pattern - the pattern as specified in Decimal­Format, Angle­Format or Simple­Date­Format javadoc.
      Returns:
      true if the pattern has been applied, or false if value­Type does not specify a known type or if the format associated to that type does not support patterns.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if the given pattern is invalid.

      Returns:
      Direct­Position​.class.
    • format

      public String format(DirectPosition position)
      Formats the given coordinate. The type of each coordinate value (number, angle or date) is determined by the CRS of the given position if such CRS is defined, or from the default CRS otherwise.
      Parameters:
      position - the coordinate to format.
      Returns:
      the formatted position.
    • format

      public void format(DirectPosition position, Appendable toAppendTo) throws IOException
      Formats the given coordinate and appends the resulting text to the given stream or buffer. The type of each coordinate value (number, angle or date) is determined by the CRS of the given position if such CRS is defined, or from the default CRS otherwise.
      Specified by:
      format in class Compound­Format<Direct­Position>
      Parameters:
      position - the coordinate to format.
      to­Append­To - where the text is to be appended.
      Throws:

    • parse

      public DirectPosition parse(CharSequence text, ParsePosition pos) throws ParseException
      Parses a coordinate from the given character sequence. This method presumes that the coordinate reference system is the default CRS. The parsing begins at the index given by the pos argument. If parsing succeeds, then the pos index is updated to the index after the last coordinate value and the parsed coordinate is returned. Otherwise (if parsing fails), the pos index is left unchanged, the pos error index is set to the index of the first unparsable character and an exception is thrown with a similar error index.
      Specified by:
      parse in class Compound­Format<Direct­Position>
      Parameters:
      text - the character sequence for the coordinate to parse.
      pos - the index where to start the parsing.
      Returns:
      the parsed coordinate (never null).
      Throws:
      Parse­Exception - if an error occurred while parsing the coordinate.
