Package org.geotoolkit.referencing.cs Description

Coordinate system implementations. An explanation for this package is provided in the OpenGIS® javadoc. The remaining discussion on this page is specific to the Geotk implementation.

Geotk provides some convenience methods for fetching specific coordinate values in standard units. For example the DefaultEllipsoidalCS class provides a getLongitude method that returns the longitude value in a given set of coordinates. This convenience method free the user from the task of finding which axis is for the longitude, and performing unit conversion.

Some useful constants defined in this package are:

Spherical CS:  GEOCENTRIC
Ellipsoidal CS:  GEODETIC_2D, GEODETIC_3D
Cartesian CS:  PROJECTED, GEOCENTRIC, GENERIC_2D, GENERIC_3D, GRID, DISPLAY
Vertical CS:  ELLIPSOIDAL_HEIGHT, GRAVITY_RELATED_HEIGHT, DEPTH
Time CS:  DAYS, SECONDS, MILLISECONDS

Some worthy Geotk-specific methods defined in this package are:
