BaseShape

Namespace: ThinkGeo.Core

The abstract class from which area shapes, line shapes, and point shapes inherit from.

public abstract class BaseShape

Inheritance ObjectBaseShape

Remarks:

The BaseShape is the lowest level shape in the shapes hierarchy. Directly inherited from BaseShape are AreaShape, LineShape and PointShape. The methods and properties on BaseShape are the lowest common denominator for all the various kinds of shapes. It marked abstract and is designed only to be inherited from.

Properties

Id

The id of the shape.

public string Id { get; set; }

Property Value

String

Tag

The tag of the shape.

public object Tag { get; set; }

Property Value

Object

Methods

CreateShapeFromWellKnownData(String)

This method creates a BaseShape from a string of well-known text.

public static BaseShape CreateShapeFromWellKnownData(string wellKnownText)

Parameters

wellKnownText String
A string representing the geometry in well-known text format.

Returns

BaseShape

        The return type is a higher level shape constructed from the well-known text you
        passed into the method. Though the object is a higher level shape, such as a
        PolygonShape or MultiPointShape, you will need to cast it to that shape in order to use
        its unique properties.

Exceptions

ArgumentException
Passing invalid well-known text in the wellKnownText parameter will throw an ArgumentException.

ArgumentNullException
Passing a null as the wellKnownText parameter will throw an ArgumentNullException.

Remarks:

This method creates a BaseShape from a string of well-known text. Well-known text allows you to describe geometries as a string of text. Well-known text is useful when you want to save a geometry in a format such as a text file, or when you simply want to cut and paste the text between other applications. An alternative to well-known text is well-known binary, which is a binary representation of a geometry object. We have methods that work with well-known binary as well. Below are some samples of what well-known text might look like for various kinds of geometries.

Passing an invalid angleInDegrees which is not between 0 and 360 will throw an ArgumentOutOfRangeException.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException
If you pass in a shapeUnit that is not defined in the enumeration, it will throw a ArgumentOutOfRangeException.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException
If you pass in a distanceUnit that is not defined in the enumeration, it will throw a ArgumentOutOfRangeException.

InvalidOperationException
In the event you attempt to call this method from a shape which has no points, it will throw an InvalidOperationException.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException
Passing an invalid distance which is not greater than or equal to 0 will throw an ArgumentOutOfRangeException.

Remarks:

This method returns a shape repositioned from one location to another based on angleInDegrees and distance parameter. With this overload, it is important to note that the distance is based on the supplied distanceUnit parameter. For example, if your shape is in decimal degrees and you call this method with a distanceUnit of miles, you're going to move this shape a number of miles based on the distance value and the angleInDegrees. In this way, you can easily move a shape in decimal degrees five miles to the north.

If you pass a distance of 0, then the operation is ignored.

        given distance from the shape.

Remarks:

Registering allows you to take a geometric shape generated in a planar system and attach it to the ground in a Geographic Unit.

A common scenario is integrating geometric shapes from external programs (such as CAD software or a modeling system) and placing them onto a map. You may have the schematics of a building in a CAD system and the relationship between all the points of the building are in feet. You want to then take the CAD image and attach it to where it really exists on a map. You would use the register method to do this.

Registering is also useful for scientific modeling, where software models things such as a plume of hazardous materials or the fallout from a volcano. The modeling software typically generates these models in a fictitious planar system. You would then use the register to take the abstract model and attach it to a map with real coordinates.

Validate(ShapeValidationMode)

This method returns a ShapeValidationResult based on a series of tests.

Parameters

validationMode ShapeValidationMode

        This parameter determines whether the test is simple or advanced. In some cases, the
        advanced tests can take some time. The simple test is designed to always be
        fast.

Returns

ShapeValidationResult

Exceptions

ArgumentOutOfRangeException
If you pass in a validationMode that is not defined in the enumeration, it will throw a ArgumentOutOfRangeException.

Remarks:

We use this method, with the simple enumeration, internally before doing any kind of other methods on the shape. In this way, we are able to verify the integrity of the shape itself. If you wish to test things such as whether a polygon self-intersects, we invite you to call this method with the advanced ShapeValidationMode. One thing to consider is that for complex polygon shapes this operation could take some time, which is why we only run the basic, faster test.

IsTopologicallyEqual(BaseShape)

This method returns if the current shape and the targetShape are topologically equal.

Parameters

targetShape BaseShape
The shape you wish to compare the current one to.

Returns

Boolean

        This method returns if the current shape and the targetShape are topologically
        equal.

Remarks:

Topologically equal means that the shapes are essentially the same. For example, let's say you have a line with two points, point A and point B. You also have another line that is made up of point A, point B and point C. Point A of line one shares the same vertex as point A of line two, and point B of line one shares the same vertex as point C of line two. They are both straight lines, so point B of line two would lie on the first line. Essentially the two lines are the same, with line 2 having just one extra point. Topologically they are the same line, so this method would return true.

As this is a concrete public method that wraps a Core method, we reserve the right to add events and other logic to pre- or post-process data returned by the Core version of the method.
