Method Detail

getInclusion

@UML(identifier="extentTypeCode",
     obligation=OPTIONAL,
     specification=ISO_19115)
Boolean getInclusion()
Indication of whether the bounding polygon encompasses an area covered by the data (inclusion) or an area where data is not present (exclusion).

Returns:
true for inclusion, false for exclusion, or null if unspecified.
Departure from OGC/ISO specification:
The ISO identifier is "extentTypeCode" and defines the value 1 for inclusion, and 0 for exclusion. GeoAPI uses a name which better expresses the meaning of the return value.
