public abstract class MathTransformBuilder extends Object
MathTransform
objects for transforming
coordinates from a source CRS
(Coordinate Reference System) to
a target CRS using empirical parameters. Usually, one of those CRS is a
geographic or projected
one with a well known relationship to the earth. The other CRS is often an
engineering or image one
tied to some ship. For example a remote sensing image before
georectification may be referenced by an image CRS.
The math transform from source CRS to target CRS is calculated byDesign note: It is technically possible to reference such remote sensing images with a CRS derived from the geographic or projected CRS, where the conversion from base is the math transform computed by this builder. Such approach is advantageous for coordinate operation factory implementations, since they can determine the operation just by inspection of the
DerivedCRS
instance. However this is conceptually incorrect sinceDerivedCRS
can be related to an other CRS only through conversions, which by definition are accurate up to rounding errors. The operations created by math transform builders are rather transformations, which can't be used forDerivedCRS
creation.

a set of mapped positions in both CRS.
Subclasses must implement at least the getMinimumPointCount()
and
computeMathTransform()
methods.
