Class DefaultVerticalCS

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Formattable, Deprecable, Lenient­Comparable, Coordinate­System, Vertical­CS, Identified­Object

public class DefaultVerticalCS extends AbstractCS implements VerticalCS
A 1-dimensional coordinate system for heights or depths of points. OGC/ISO do not provide an exact definition, since the complexity of vertical CS fall outside the scope of ISO 19111. Some examples of vertical coordinate systems are:
  • Height in metres from a surface dependent on the Earth's gravity field
  • Height or depth represented by an atmospheric or water pressure measurement.
  • Depth represented by the time needed for an echo signal to travel.
  • "Sigma-level depth" (used in oceanography) as a dimensionless quantity.
The above examples show the variety of units of measurement which can be associated to vertical positions.

Immutability and thread safety

This class is immutable and thus thread-safe if the property values (not necessarily the map itself) and the Coordinate­System­Axis instances given to the constructor are also immutable. Unless otherwise noted in the javadoc, this condition holds if all components were created using only SIS factories and static constants.

  • Method Details

    • castOrCopy

      public static DefaultVerticalCS castOrCopy(VerticalCS object)
      Returns a SIS coordinate system implementation with the same values than the given arbitrary implementation. If the given object is null, then this method returns null. Otherwise if the given object is already a SIS implementation, then the given object is returned unchanged. Otherwise a new SIS implementation is created and initialized to the attribute values of the given object.
      object - the object to get as a SIS implementation, or null if none.
      a SIS implementation containing the values of the given object (may be the given object itself), or null if the argument was null.
    • getInterface

      public Class<? extends VerticalCS> getInterface()
      Returns the GeoAPI interface implemented by this class. The SIS implementation returns Vertical­CS​.class.
      Note for implementers: Subclasses usually do not need to override this method since GeoAPI does not define Vertical­CS sub-interface. Overriding possibility is left mostly for implementers who wish to extend GeoAPI with their own set of interfaces.
      get­Interface in class Abstract­CS
      Vertical­CS​.class or a user-defined sub-interface.
    • forConvention

      public DefaultVerticalCS forConvention(AxesConvention convention)
      Returns a coordinate system equivalent to this one but with axes rearranged according the given convention. If this coordinate system is already compatible with the given convention, then this method returns this.
      for­Convention in class Abstract­CS
      convention - the axes convention for which a coordinate system is desired.
      a coordinate system compatible with the given convention (may be this).
