    • Method Detail

      • getDomainOfValidity

        @UML(identifier="domainOfValidity",
             obligation=OPTIONAL,
             specification=ISO_19111)
        Extent getDomainOfValidity()
        Area or region or timeframe in which this (coordinate) reference system is valid.
        Returns:
        the reference system valid domain, or null if not available.
        Since:
        2.1
        Departure from OGC/ISO specification:
        This method has been kept conformant with the specification published in 2003. Later revisions changed the multiplicity, so the return type should now be a collection. The singleton has been preserved in GeoAPI for historical reasons, and also because the Extent attributes already allow collections.
      • getScope

        @UML(identifier="SC_CRS.scope",
             obligation=OPTIONAL,
             specification=ISO_19111)
        InternationalString getScope()
        Description of domain of usage, or limitations of usage, for which this Reference System object is valid.
        Returns:
        the domain of usage, or null if none.
        Departure from OGC/ISO specification:
        This method was initially derived from the ISO 19111 specification published in 2003. Later revision (ISO 19111:2007) differs in 3 aspects:
        • ISO 19111:2007 moved this property from this type to the SC_CRS subtype. GeoAPI keeps this property here for historical reasons.
        • ISO 19111:2007 changed the obligation from optional to mandatory and requires the value to be "not known" if the scope is unknown. GeoAPI lefts the obligation unchanged: optional with null value for unknown scope.
        • ISO 19111:2007 changed the multiplicity from singleton to a collection. GeoAPI keeps the singleton type for historical reasons.
