        This method returns a MultipointShape which has been registered from its original
        coordinate system to another based on two anchor PointShapes.

Exceptions

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

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

InvalidOperationException
In the event you attempt to call this method on this shape which has invalid upper left and lower right points, it will throw an InvalidOperationException.

Remarks:

The register method is useful, for example, when a group of points represented by a MultipointShape has been generated in a non-geographic coordinate in meters, and you want to plot the points on a map that is in decimal degrees.

TranslateByOffsetCore(Double, Double, GeographyUnit, DistanceUnit)

This method moves the base shape from one location to another, based on an X and Y offset distance.

protected void TranslateByOffsetCore(double xOffsetDistance, double yOffsetDistance, GeographyUnit shapeUnit, DistanceUnit distanceUnit)

Parameters

xOffsetDistance Double

        This is the number of horizontal units of movement in the DistanceUnit specified as
        the distanceUnit.

yOffsetDistance Double

        This is the number of horizontal units of movement in the DistanceUnit specified as
        the distanceUnit.

shapeUnit GeographyUnit
This is the GeographicUnit of the shape you are performing the operation on.

distanceUnit DistanceUnit
This is the DistanceUnit you would like to use as the measure for the move. For example, if you select miles as your distanceUnit, then the xOffsetDistance and yOffsetDistance will be calculated in miles.

Exceptions

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

ArgumentOutOfRangeException
If you pass in a shapeUnit 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.

Remarks:

This method moves the base shape from one location to another, based on an X and Y offset distance. With this overload, it is important to note that the X and Y offset units are based on the distanceUnit parameter. For example, if your shape is in decimal degrees and you call this method with an X offset of 1 and a Y offset of 1, you're going to move this shape 1 unit of the distanceUnit in the horizontal direction and one unit of the distanceUnit in the vertical direction. In this way, you can easily move a shape in decimal degrees five miles to on the X axis and 3 miles on the Y axis.

TranslateByDegreeCore(Double, Double, GeographyUnit, DistanceUnit)

This method moves the shape from one location to another, based on a direction in degrees and distance.

protected void TranslateByDegreeCore(double distance, double angleInDegrees, GeographyUnit shapeUnit, DistanceUnit distanceUnit)

Parameters

distance Double

        The distance is the number of units to move the shape in the angle specified. The
        distance unit will be the same as the GeographyUnit for the shape. The distance must be
        greater than or equal to 0.

angleInDegrees Double
A number between 0 and 360 degrees that represents the direction you wish to move the shape, with 0 being up.

shapeUnit GeographyUnit
This is the GeographicUnit of the shape you are performing the operation on.

distanceUnit DistanceUnit
This is the DistanceUnit you would like to use as the measure for the move. For example, if you select miles as your distanceUnit, then the xOffsetDistance and yOffsetDistance will be calculated in miles.

Exceptions

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

InvalidOperationException
In the event you attempt to call this method on this shape which has invalid upper left and lower right 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 moves the base shape from one location to another, based on an angleInDegrees and distance parameter. With this overload, it is important to note that the distance units are the same GeographicUnit as the shape. For example, if your shape is in decimal degrees and you call this method with a distance of 1, you're going to move this shape 1 decimal degree in direction of the angleInDegrees. In many cases it is more useful to specify the DistanceUnit of movement, such as in miles or yards, so for these scenarios there is another overload you may want to use instead.

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

GetClosestPointToCore(BaseShape, GeographyUnit)

This method returns the point of the current shape that is closest to the target shape.

protected PointShape GetClosestPointToCore(BaseShape targetShape, GeographyUnit shapeUnit)

Parameters

targetShape BaseShape
The shape you are trying to find the closest point to.

shapeUnit GeographyUnit
This is the GeographicUnit of the shape you are performing the operation on.

Returns

PointShape

        A PointShape representing the closest point of the current shape to the
        targetShape.

Exceptions

ArgumentException
If you pass in a targetShape which does not have any points, we will throw an ArgumentException.

ArgumentNullException
If you pass a null as the targetShape, we will throw an ArgumentNullException.

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

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

Remarks:

This method returns the point of the current shape that is closest to the target shape. It is often the case that the point returned is not a point of the object itself. An example would be a line with two points that are far apart from each other. If you set the targetShape to be a point midway between the points but a short distance away from the line, the method would return a point that is on the line but not either of the two points that make up the line.

GetDistanceToCore(BaseShape, GeographyUnit, DistanceUnit)

This method computes the distance between the current shape and the targetShape.

protected double GetDistanceToCore(BaseShape targetShape, GeographyUnit shapeUnit, DistanceUnit distanceUnit)

Parameters

targetShape BaseShape
The shape you are trying to find the distance to.

        GeographyUnit of the shape.
        Overriding:
        Please ensure that you validate the parameters being passed in and raise the exceptions defined
        above.

Exceptions

ArgumentException

GetWellKnownTextCore(RingOrder)

This method returns the well-known text representation of this shape.

protected string GetWellKnownTextCore(RingOrder outerRingOrder)

Parameters

outerRingOrder RingOrder

Returns

String
This method returns a string that represents the shape in well-known text.

Exceptions

InvalidOperationException
In the event you attempt to call this method on this shape which has invalid upper left and lower right points, it will throw an InvalidOperationException.

Remarks:

This method returns a string that represents the shape in well-known text. Well-known text allows you to describe a geometry 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 geometric shapes.

POINT(5 17)

LINESTRING(4 5,10 50,25 80)

POLYGON((2 2,6 2,6 6,2 6,2 2),(3 3,4 3,4 4,3 4,3 3))

MULTIPOINT(3.7 9.7,4.9 11.6)

MULTILINESTRING((4 5,11 51,21 26),(-4 -7,-9 -7,-14 -3))

MULTIPOLYGON(((2 2,6 2,6 6,2 6,2 2),(3 3,4 3,4 4,3 4,3 3)),((4 4,7 3,7 5,4 4)))

protected Byte[] GetWellKnownBinaryCore(RingOrder outerRingOrder, WkbByteOrder byteOrder)

Parameters

outerRingOrder RingOrder

byteOrder WkbByteOrder
This parameter specifies whether the byte order is big- or little-endian.

Returns

Byte[]

        This method returns a byte array that represents the shape in well-known
        binary.

Exceptions

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

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

Remarks:

This method returns a byte array that represents the shape in well-known binary. Well-known binary allows you to describe a geometry as a binary array. Well-known binary is useful when you want to save a geometry in an efficient format using as little space as possible. An alternative to well-known binary is well-known text, which is a textual representation of a geometry object. We have methods that work with well-known text as well.

LoadFromWellKnownDataCore(String)

This method hydrates the current shape with its data from well-known text.

protected void LoadFromWellKnownDataCore(string wellKnownText)

Parameters

wellKnownText String
This parameter is the well-known text you will use to hydrate your object.

This method returns whether the current shape and the targetShape have no points in common.

protected bool IsDisjointedCore(BaseShape targetShape)

Parameters

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

ValidateCore(ShapeValidationMode)

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

protected ShapeValidationResult ValidateCore(ShapeValidationMode validationMode)

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

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

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. If you are dealing with polygon shapes that are suspect, we suggest you run the advanced test.

GetCrossingCore(BaseShape)

This method returns the crossing points between the current shape and the passed-in target shape.

protected MultipointShape GetCrossingCore(BaseShape targetShape)

Parameters

targetShape BaseShape
The target shape you wish to get crossing with.
