- All Superinterfaces:
@UML(identifier="GM_Ring", specification=ISO_19107) public interface Ring extends CompositeCurveRepresent a single connected component of a surface boundary. It consists of a number of references to orientable curves connected in a cycle (an object whose boundary is empty). A
Ringis structurally similar to a composite curve in that the end point of each orientable curve in the sequence is the start point of the next orientable curve in the sequence. Since the sequence is circular, there is no exception to this rule. Each ring, like all boundaries is a cycle and each ring is simple.
Even though each
Ringis simple, the boundary need not be simple. The easiest case of this is where one of the interior rings of a surface is tangent to its exterior ring. Implementations may enforce stronger restrictions on the interaction of boundary elements.
