Class AbstractGeographicExtent

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Geographic­Extent
Direct Known Subclasses:
Default­Bounding­Polygon, Default­Geographic­Bounding­Box, Default­Geographic­Description

public class AbstractGeographicExtent extends ISOMetadata implements GeographicExtent
Base class for geographic area of the dataset.

Limitations

  • 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.

  • Constructor Details

    • AbstractGeographicExtent

      public AbstractGeographicExtent()
      Constructs an initially empty geographic extent.
    • AbstractGeographicExtent

      public AbstractGeographicExtent(boolean inclusion)
      Constructs a geographic extent initialized with the specified inclusion value.
      Parameters:
      inclusion - whether the bounding polygon encompasses an area covered by the data.
    • AbstractGeographicExtent

      public AbstractGeographicExtent(GeographicExtent object)
      Constructs a new instance initialized with the values from the specified metadata object. This is a shallow copy constructor, since the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
      Parameters:
      object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

    • castOrCopy

      public static AbstractGeographicExtent castOrCopy(GeographicExtent object)
      Returns a SIS metadata implementation with the values of the given arbitrary implementation. This method performs the first applicable action in the following choices:
      • If the given object is null, then this method returns null.
      • Otherwise if the given object is an instance of Bounding­Polygon, Geographic­Bounding­Box or Geographic­Description, then this method delegates to the cast­Or­Copy(…) method of the corresponding SIS subclass. Note that if the given object implements more than one of the above-cited interfaces, then the cast­Or­Copy(…) method to be used is unspecified.
      • Otherwise if the given object is already an instance of Abstract­Geographic­Extent, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Abstract­Geographic­Extent instance is created using the copy constructor and returned. Note that this is a shallow copy operation, since the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
      Parameters:
      object - the object to get as a SIS implementation, or null if none.
      Returns:
      a SIS implementation containing the values of the given object (may be the given object itself), or null if the argument was null.
    • getInclusion

      public Boolean getInclusion()
      Indication of whether the bounding polygon encompasses an area covered by the data (inclusion) or an area where data is not present (exclusion).
      Specified by:
      get­Inclusion in interface Geographic­Extent
      Returns:
      true for inclusion, or false for exclusion.
    • setInclusion

      public void setInclusion(Boolean newValue)
      Sets whether the bounding polygon encompasses an area covered by the data (inclusion) or an area where data is not present (exclusion).
      Parameters:
      new­Value - true if the bounding polygon encompasses an area covered by the data.
