Transforms multidimensional coordinate points. A
MathTransform
is an object
that actually does the work of applying a formula to coordinate values.
The math transform does not know or care how the coordinates relate to positions in the real world.
For example, the affine transform applies a matrix to the coordinates without knowing how what it is doing
relates to the real world. So if the matrix scales z values by a factor of 1000,
then it could be converting metres into millimetres, or it could be converting kilometres into metres.
Because they have low semantic value (but high mathematical value), MathTransform
s can be used
in applications that have nothing to do with GIS coordinates. For example, a math transform could be used
to map color coordinates between different color spaces, such as converting (red, green, blue) colors into
(hue, light, saturation) colors.
Application to coordinate operations
When used for coordinate operations, this interface transforms coordinate value for a point given in the source coordinate reference system to coordinate value for the same point in the target coordinate reference system. In a conversion, the transformation is accurate to within the limitations of the computer making the calculations.
 In a transformation, where some of the operational parameters are derived from observations, the transformation is accurate to within the limitations of those observations.

, ornull
. Returns:
 the coordinate point after transforming
ptSrc
and storing the result inptDst
, or a newly created point ifptDst

This method is provided for efficiently transforming many points. The supplied array of ordinal values will contain packed ordinal values. For example, if the source dimension is 3, then the ordinals will be packed in this order: (x₀,y₀,z₀, x₁,y₁,z₁ …). Parameters:
srcPts
 the array containing the source point coordinates.srcOff
 the offset to the first point to be transformed in the source array.dstPts
 the array into which the transformed point coordinates are returned. May be the same thansrcPts
.dstOff
 the offset to the location of the first transformed point that is stored in the destination array.numPts
 the number of point objects to be transformed. Throws:
TransformException
 if a point cannot be transformed. Some implementations will stop at the first failure, wile some other implementations will fill the untransformable points with Double.NaN values, continue and throw the exception only at end. Implementations that fall in the latter case should set the last completed transform tothis

derivative
@UML(identifier="derivative", specification=OGC_01009) Matrix derivative(DirectPosition point) throws MismatchedDimensionException, TransformException Gets the derivative of this transform at a point. The derivative is the matrix of the nontranslating portion of the approximate affine map at the point. The matrix will have dimensions corresponding to the source and target coordinate systems. If the input dimension is M, and the output dimension is N, then the matrix will have size N×M. The elements of the matrix {e_{n,m} : n=0 … (N1)} form a vector in the output space which is parallel to the displacement caused by a small change in the m'th coordinate in the input space.For example, if the input dimension is 4 and the output dimension is 3, then a small displacement (x₀, x₁, x₂, x₃) in the input space will result in a displacement (y₀, y₁, y₂) in the output space computed as below (e_{n,m} are the matrix elements):
┌ ┐ ┌ ┐ ┌ ┐ │ y₀ │ │ e₀₀ e₀₁ e₀₂ e₀₃ │ │ x₀ │ │ y₁ │ = │ e₁₀ e₁₁ e₁₂ e₁₃ │ │ x₁ │ │ y₂ │ │ e₂₀ e₂₁ e₂₂ e₂₃ │ │ x₂ │ └ ┘ └ ┘ │ x₃ │ └ ┘
 Parameters:
point
 the coordinate point where to evaluate the derivative. Null value is accepted only if the derivative is the same everywhere. For example, affine transform accept null value since they produces identical derivative no matter the coordinate value. But most map projection will requires a nonnull value. Returns:
 the derivative at the specified point (never
null
). This method never returns an internal object: changing the matrix will not change the state of this math transform.  Throws:
NullPointerException
 if the derivative depends on coordinate andpoint
isnull
.MismatchedDimensionException
 ifpoint
does not have the expected dimension.TransformException
 if the derivative cannot be evaluated at the specified point.

inverse
@UML(identifier="inverse", specification=OGC_01009) MathTransform inverse() throws NoninvertibleTransformExceptionCreates the inverse transform of this object. The target of the inverse transform is the source of the original. The source of the inverse transform is the target of the original. Using the original transform followed by the inverse's transform will result in an identity map on the source coordinate space, when allowances for error are made. This method may fail if the transform is not one to one. However, all cartographic projections should succeed. Returns:
 the inverse transform.
 Throws:
NoninvertibleTransformException
 if the transform cannot be inverted. See Also:

isIdentity
Tests whether this transform does not move any points. Returns:
true
if thisMathTransform
is an identity transform;false
otherwise. See Also:

toWKT
Returns a WellKnown Text (WKT) for this object. Version 1 of WellKnow Text is defined in extended Backus Naur form. This operation may fail if unsupported or if this instance contains elements that do not have WKT representation. Returns:
 the WellKnown Text (WKT) for this object.
 Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException
 if this object cannot be formatted as WKT. See Also:
