CoverageQuery
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable

public class CoverageQuery extends Query implements Cloneable, Serializable
Definition of filtering to apply for fetching a subset of Grid­Coverage­Resource. This query allows requesting a subset of the coverage domain and the range.

Terminology

This class uses relational database terminology for consistency with generic queries:
  • A selection is a filter choosing the cells or pixels to include in the subset. In this context, the selection is the coverage domain.
  • A projection (not to be confused with map projection) is the set of sample values to keep. In this context, the projection is the coverage range (i.e. set of sample dimensions).

Optional values

All aspects of this query are optional and initialized to "none". Unless otherwise specified, all methods accept a null argument or can return a null value, which means "none".

  • Constructor Details

    • CoverageQuery

      public CoverageQuery()
      Creates a new query performing no filtering.
  • Method Details

    • setSelection

      public void setSelection(Envelope domain)
      Sets the approximate area of cells or pixels to include in the subset. This convenience method creates a grid geometry containing only the given envelope. Note that the given envelope is approximate: Coverages may expand the envelope to an integer amount of tiles.
      Specified by:
      set­Selection in class Query
      Parameters:
      domain - the approximate area of interest, or null if none.
    • setSelection

      public void setSelection(GridGeometry domain)
      Sets the desired grid extent and resolution. The given domain is approximate: Coverages may use a different resolution and expand the envelope to an integer amount of tiles.
      Parameters:
      domain - desired grid extent and resolution, or null for reading the whole domain.
    • getSelection

      public GridGeometry getSelection()
      Returns the desired grid extent and resolution. This is the value set by the last call to set­Selection(Grid­Geometry).
      Note on terminology: "selection" is the generic term used in queries for designating a subset of feature instances. In a grid coverage, feature instances are cells or pixels. So this concept maps to the coverage domain.
      Returns:
      desired grid extent and resolution, or null for reading the whole domain.
    • setProjection

      public void setProjection(String... range)
      Sets the sample dimensions to read by their names.
      Specified by:
      set­Projection in class Query
      Parameters:
      range - sample dimensions to retrieve, or null to retrieve all properties.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if a sample dimension is duplicated.
    • setProjection

      public void setProjection(int... range)
      Sets the indices of samples dimensions to read (the coverage range). A null value means to read all sample dimensions (no filtering on range). If non-null, then the range array shall contain at least one element, all elements must be positive and no value can be duplicated.
      Parameters:
      range - 0-based indices of sample dimensions to read, or null for reading them all.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if the given array is empty or contains negative or duplicated values.
    • getProjection

      public int[] getProjection()
      Returns the indices of samples dimensions to read, or null if there is no filtering on range. If non-null, the returned array shall never be empty.
      Note on terminology: "projection" (not to be confused with map projection) is the generic term used in queries for designating a subset of feature properties retained in each feature instances. In a coverage, this concept maps to the coverage range.
      Returns:
      0-based indices of sample dimensions to read, or null for reading them all.
    • setSourceDomainExpansion

      public void setSourceDomainExpansion(int margin)
      Sets a number of additional cells to read on each border of the source grid coverage. If non-zero, this property expands the domain to be read by the specified margin.

      Unit of measurement

      The parameter value is a number of cells in the domain argument specified in a read operation. If no domain is specified at read time, then this is a number of cells in the full image to be read from the resource. Cells are counted after subsampling, e.g. cells are twice bigger if a subsampling of 2 is applied. Those cells do not necessarily have the same size than the cells of the domain of this query.

      Use case

      At reading time it may be necessary to add a margin to the coverage extent. This margin is used when the user knows that an image processing operation will need to iterate over a little bit more data than the area of interest. For example the bilinear interpolation uses a 2×2 pixels window.
      Parameters:
      margin - read margin, which must be zero or positive.
    • getSourceDomainExpansion

      public int getSourceDomainExpansion()
      Returns the number of additional cells to read on each border of the source grid coverage. This is the value sets by the last call to set­Source­Domain­Expansion(int).
      Returns:
      read margin, zero or positive.
    • clone

      public CoverageQuery clone()
      Returns a clone of this query.
      Overrides:
      clone in class Object
      Returns:
      a clone of this query.
    • hashCode

      public int hashCode()
      Returns a hash code value for this query.
      Overrides:
      hash­Code in class Object
      Returns:
      a hash value for this query.
    • equals

      public boolean equals(Object obj)
      Compares this query with the given object for equality.
      Overrides:
      equals in class Object
      Parameters:
      obj - the object to compare with this query.
      Returns:
      whether the two objects are equal.
    • toString

      public String toString()
      Returns a textual representation of this query for debugging purposes. The default implementation returns a string that looks like an SQL Select query.
      Overrides:
      to­String in class Object
      Returns:
      textual representation of this query.
