Class LocationFormat

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Localized

public class LocationFormat extends TabularFormat<AbstractLocation>
Formats Location instances in a tabular format. This format assumes a monospaced font and an encoding supporting drawing box characters (e.g. UTF-8).
Example: the location identified by "32TNL83" in the military grid reference system can be represented by the following string formatted using Locale​.ENGLISH:
│ Location type:               Grid zone designator           │
│ Geographic identifier:       32TNL83                        │
│ West bound:                    580,000 m    —     9°57′00″E │
│ Representative value:          585,000 m    —    10°00′36″E │
│ East bound:                    590,000 m    —    10°04′13″E │
│ South bound:                 4,530,000 m    —    40°54′58″N │
│ Representative value:        4,535,000 m    —    40°57′42″N │
│ North bound:                 4,540,000 m    —    41°00′27″N │
│ Coordinate reference system: WGS 84 / UTM zone 32N          │


  • The current implementation can only format features — parsing is not yet implemented.
