- All Implemented Interfaces:
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.
|Used with CRS||Permitted axis names|
|Vertical||“Gravity-related height” or “Depth”|
Immutability and thread safetyThis class is immutable and thus thread-safe if the property values (not necessarily the map itself) and the
CoordinateSystemAxisinstances 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.

DefaultVerticalCSConstructs a coordinate system from a set of properties. The properties map is given unchanged to the super-class constructor. The following table is a reminder of main (not all) properties:
Recognized properties (non exhaustive list) Property name Value type Returned by "name"
CharSequence(optionally as array)
ReferenceIdentifier(optionally as array)
properties- the properties to be given to the identified object.
axis- the single axis (e.g. “height” or “depth”).

(VerticalCS cs)Creates a new coordinate system with the same values than the specified one. This copy constructor provides a way to convert an arbitrary implementation into a SIS one or a user-defined one (as a subclass), usually in order to leverage some implementation-specific API.
This constructor performs a shallow copy, i.e. the properties are not cloned.
cs- the coordinate system to copy.

castOrCopyReturns 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
- a SIS implementation containing the values of the given object (may be the
given object itself), or
nullif the argument was null.
getInterfaceReturns 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
VerticalCSsub-interface. Overriding possibility is left mostly for implementers who wish to extend GeoAPI with their own set of interfaces.
forConventionReturns 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
