Class DefaultExtent

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Extent

@TitleProperty(name="description") public class DefaultExtent extends ISOMetadata implements Extent
Information about spatial, vertical, and temporal extent. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
EX_Extent   ├─description…………………… The spatial and temporal extent for the referring object.   ├─geographic­Element…… Geographic component of the extent of the referring object.   ├─temporal­Element………… Temporal component of the extent of the referring object.   │   └─extent……………………… The date and time for the content of the dataset.   └─vertical­Element………… Vertical component of the extent of the referring object.       ├─minimum­Value……… The lowest vertical extent contained in the dataset.       ├─maximum­Value……… The highest vertical extent contained in the dataset.       └─vertical­CRS………… Information about the vertical coordinate reference system.
This type has four conditional properties: geographic elements, temporal elements, vertical elements and description. At least one of the four shall be used.

In addition to the standard properties, SIS provides the following methods:

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

    • DefaultExtent

      public DefaultExtent()
      Constructs an initially empty extent.
    • DefaultExtent

      public DefaultExtent(CharSequence description, GeographicExtent geographicElements, VerticalExtent verticalElements, TemporalExtent temporalElements)
      Constructs an extent initialized to the given description or components. Any argument given to this constructor can be null. While a valid Extent requires at least one component to be non-null, this constructor does not perform such verification.
      Parameters:
      description - a description, or null if none.
      geographic­Elements - a geographic component, or null if none.
      vertical­Elements - a vertical component, or null if none.
      temporal­Elements - a temporal component, or null if none.
    • DefaultExtent

      public DefaultExtent(Extent 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.

  • Method Details

    • castOrCopy

      public static DefaultExtent castOrCopy(Extent 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 already an instance of Default­Extent, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Extent 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.
    • getDescription

      public InternationalString getDescription()
      Returns the spatial and temporal extent for the referring object.
      Specified by:
      get­Description in interface Extent
      Returns:
      the spatial and temporal extent, or null in none.
    • setDescription

      public void setDescription(InternationalString newValue)
      Sets the spatial and temporal extent for the referring object.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new description.
    • getGeographicElements

      public Collection<GeographicExtent> getGeographicElements()
      Provides geographic component of the extent of the referring object
      Specified by:
      get­Geographic­Elements in interface Extent
      Returns:
      the geographic extent, or an empty set if none.
    • setGeographicElements

      public void setGeographicElements(Collection<? extends GeographicExtent> newValues)
      Sets geographic component of the extent of the referring object.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new geographic elements.
    • getVerticalElements

      public Collection<VerticalExtent> getVerticalElements()
      Provides vertical component of the extent of the referring object.
      Specified by:
      get­Vertical­Elements in interface Extent
      Returns:
      the vertical extent, or an empty set if none.
    • setVerticalElements

      public void setVerticalElements(Collection<? extends VerticalExtent> newValues)
      Sets vertical component of the extent of the referring object.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new vertical elements.
    • getTemporalElements

      public Collection<TemporalExtent> getTemporalElements()
      Provides temporal component of the extent of the referring object.
      Specified by:
      get­Temporal­Elements in interface Extent
      Returns:
      the temporal extent, or an empty set if none.
    • setTemporalElements

      public void setTemporalElements(Collection<? extends TemporalExtent> newValues)
      Sets temporal component of the extent of the referring object.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new temporal elements.
    • addElements

      public void addElements(Envelope envelope) throws TransformException
      Adds geographic, vertical or temporal extents inferred from the given envelope. This method inspects the envelope CRS and creates a Geographic­Bounding­Box, Vertical­Extent or Temporal­Extent elements as needed.

      Note: this method is available only if the referencing module is on the classpath.

      Parameters:
      envelope - the envelope to use for inferring the additional extents.
      Throws:
      Unsupported­Operation­Exception - if the referencing module is not on the classpath.
      Transform­Exception - if a coordinate transformation was required and failed.

    • intersect

      public void intersect(Extent other)
      Sets this extent to the intersection of this extent with the specified one. This method computes the intersections of all geographic, vertical and temporal elements in this extent with all geographic, vertical and temporal elements in the other extent, ignoring duplicated results.
      Parameters:
      other - the extent to intersect with this extent.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if two elements to intersect are not compatible (e.g. mismatched bounding box inclusion status or mismatched vertical datum).
      Unsupported­Operation­Exception - if a Temporal­Factory is required but no implementation has been found on the classpath.
