Enum ElementKind

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Element­Kind>, Constable

public enum ElementKind extends Enum<ElementKind>
Kind of an element in a Well Known Text. Different kinds of elements can be associated to different colors.

Defined in the sis-referencing module

  • Enum Constant Details

    • NAME

      public static final ElementKind NAME
      Object name, typically written immediately after the WKT keyword and its opening bracket.

      public static final ElementKind IDENTIFIER
      Object identifier, typically written almost last just before remarks.
    • NUMBER

      public static final ElementKind NUMBER
      Floating point numbers (excluding integer types).

      public static final ElementKind INTEGER
      Integer numbers.
    • UNIT

      public static final ElementKind UNIT
      Units of measurement, often represented by UNIT[…] elements.
    • AXIS

      public static final ElementKind AXIS
      Coordinate system axes, often represented by AXIS[…] elements.

      public static final ElementKind CODE_LIST
      Code list values.

      public static final ElementKind PARAMETER
      Name of parameters, often represented by PARAMETER[…] elements.
    • METHOD

      public static final ElementKind METHOD
      Operation methods, often represented by PROJECTION[…] elements.
    • DATUM

      public static final ElementKind DATUM
      Datum, often represented by DATUM[…] elements.
    • SCOPE

      public static final ElementKind SCOPE
      CRS, datum or operation scope, often represented by SCOPE[…] elements.
    • EXTENT

      public static final ElementKind EXTENT
      CRS, datum or operation domain of validity, often represented by AREA[…] or BBOX[…] elements.

      public static final ElementKind CITATION
      Citation (typically for the authority), often represented by CITATION[…] elements.

      public static final ElementKind REMARKS
      Remarks, often represented by REMARKS[…] elements.

      When formatting an ISO 19162 Well Known Text, texts quoted as remarks preserve non-ASCII characters. By contrast, quoted texts in any other Element­Kind will have some non-ASCII characters replaced by ASCII ones (e.g. "é" → "e").

    • ERROR

      public static final ElementKind ERROR
      Unformattable elements.
  • Method Details

    • values

      public static ElementKind[] values()
      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.
      an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
    • valueOf

      public static ElementKind 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.)
      name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
      the enum constant with the specified name
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
      Null­Pointer­Exception - if the argument is null
    • forType

      public static ElementKind forType(Class<?> type)
      Returns the element kind for an object of the given type. The current implementation defines the following associations:
      Mapping from Java type to WKT element
      Base type Kind
      Datum DATUM
      OperationMethod METHOD
      GeneralParameterValue PARAMETER
      CoordinateSystemAxis AXIS
      Identifier IDENTIFIER
      Citation CITATION
      CodeList CODE_LIST
      Extent EXTENT
      Unit UNIT
      Number INTEGER or NUMBER
      The given type can be any sub-type of the above types. If an object implements more than one of the above interfaces, then the selected Element­Kind is arbitrary.
      type - the object type, or null.
      the element kind of the given type, or null if none match.
