Interface FootPrint


  • @UML(identifier="CV_FootPrint",
         specification=ISO_19123)
    public interface FootPrint
    The presentation of an observed or measured space surrounding a sample point in the context of some external coordinate reference system.
    Since:
    GeoAPI 2.1
    • Method Detail

      • getGeometry

        @UML(identifier="geometry",
             obligation=MANDATORY,
             specification=ISO_19123)
        Geometry getGeometry()
        Returns the geometry that shapes the foot print. In the simplest case this can be a point, but it can also be a disc, sphere or hypersphere.
        Returns:
        the geometry that shapes the foot print.
      • getCenter

        @UML(identifier="center",
             obligation=MANDATORY,
             specification=ISO_19123)
        GridPoint getCenter()
        Returns the grid point to which this foot print corresponds.
        Returns:
        the grid point to which this foot print corresponds.

        GridPoint.getFootPrints()
        TODO:
        his role name in ISO 19123, "center", is a misnomer. By definition, the sample point represented in the same external coordinate reference system as the footprint, is the "center" of the footprint. This "center" attribute associates the footprint with a grid point, which represents only the index into the grid. This implementation specification, therefore, has renamed the association role to "index".
