Interface CSFactory

  • All Superinterfaces:
    Factory, ObjectFactory

    public interface CSFactory
    extends ObjectFactory
    Builds up complex coordinate systems from simpler objects or values. CSFactory allows applications to make coordinate systems that cannot be created by a CSAuthorityFactory. This factory is very flexible, whereas the authority factory is easier to use. So CSAuthorityFactory can be used to make "standard" coordinate systems, and CSFactory can be used to make "special" coordinate systems.

    CRSFactory, DatumFactory
    Departure from OGC/ISO specification:
    Added for consistency with CRS and datum factories. This CS factory was not defined in the OGC specification because OGC 01-009 was created before ISO 19111 and had no equivalent of the ISO Coordinate System types.
