coordinate reference system is permitted.
The grid's origin is the minimum X and Y point of the envelope. If the width and/or height of the bounding envelope is not a simple multiple of the requested side length, there will be some unfilled space.
Each square in the returned grid is represented by a SimpleFeature

added more or less uniformly.
The coordinate reference system is taken from the input bounds. A null
coordinate
reference system is permitted.

The coordinate reference system is taken from the GridFeatureBuilder
. A null
coordinate reference system is permitted but if both the builder and bounding envelope
have nonnull
reference systems set they must be the same.

The hexagons created by this method are orientated with a pair of edges parallel to the
top and bottom of the bounding envelope (org.geotools.grid.hexagon.Hexagon.Orientation#FLAT). The bounding rectangle of each hexagon
has width sideLen * 2.0
and height sideLen * sqrt(3.0)
.
The grid's origin is the minimum X and Y point of the envelope.

vertexSpacing
which specifies the maximum distance between adjacent vertices. Vertices are
added more or less uniformly.
Hexagon size is expressed as side length. To create hexagons of specified area you can use the static Hexagons.areaToSideLength(double) method to calculate the equivalent side length.
