Class CRS

Object
  extended by CRS

public final class CRS
extends Object

Simple utility class for making use of the coordinate reference system and associated Factory implementations. This utility class is made up of static final functions. This class is not a factory or a builder. It makes use of the GeoAPI factory interfaces provided by ReferencingFactoryFinder.

The following methods may be added in a future version:

When using CoordinateReferenceSystem matching methods of this class (equalsIgnoreMetadata(Object, Object),lookupIdentifier(IdentifiedObject, boolean), lookupEpsgCode(CoordinateReferenceSystem, boolean), lookupIdentifier(IdentifiedObject, boolean), lookupIdentifier(Citation, CoordinateReferenceSystem, boolean)) against objects derived from a database other than the official EPSG one it may be advisable to set a non zero comparison tolerance with Hints.putSystemDefault(java.awt.RenderingHints.Key, Object) using the Hints.COMPARISON_TOLERANCE key. A value of 10e-9 has proved to give satisfactory results with definitions commonly found in .prj files accompaining shapefiles and georeferenced images.
Warning: the tolerance value is used in all internal comparison, this will also change the way math transforms are setup. Use with care.

Method Detail

getAuthorityFactory

public static CRSAuthorityFactory getAuthorityFactory(boolean longitudeFirst)
                                               throws FactoryRegistryException
Returns the CRS authority factory used by the decode methods. This factory is buffered, scans over all factories and uses additional factories as fallbacks if there is more than one registered factory for the same authority.

This factory can be used as a kind of system-wide factory for all authorities. However for more determinist behavior, consider using a more specific factory (as returned by ReferencingFactoryFinder.getCRSAuthorityFactory(java.lang.String, org.geotools.factory.Hints) when the authority in known.

Parameters:
longitudeFirst - true if axis order should be forced to (longitude,latitude). Note that false means "use default", not "latitude first".
Returns:
The CRS authority factory.
Throws:
FactoryRegistryException - if the factory can't be created.
Since:
2.3

getCoordinateOperationFactory

public static CoordinateOperationFactory getCoordinateOperationFactory(boolean lenient)
Returns the coordinate operation factory used by findMathTransform convenience methods.

Parameters:
lenient - true if the coordinate operations should be created even when there is no information available for a datum shift.
Since:
2.4

getVersion

public static Version getVersion(String authority)
                          throws FactoryRegistryException
Returns the version number of the specified authority database, or null if not available.

Parameters:
authority - The authority name (typically "EPSG").
Returns:
The version number of the authority database, or null if unknown.
Throws:
FactoryRegistryException - if no CRSAuthorityFactory implementation was found for the specified authority.
Since:
2.4

getSupportedCodes

public static Set<String> getSupportedCodes(String authority)
Get the list of the codes that are supported by the given authority. For example getSupportedCodes("EPSG") may returns "EPSG:2000", "EPSG:2001", "EPSG:2002", etc. It may also returns "2000", "2001", "2002", etc. without the "EPSG:" prefix. Whatever the authority name is prefixed or not is factory implementation dependent.

If there is more than one factory for the given authority, then this method merges the code set of all of them. If a factory fails to provide a set of supported code, then this particular factory is ignored. Please be aware of the following potential issues:

If a more determinist behavior is wanted, consider the code below instead. The following code exploit only one factory, the "preferred" one.

CRSAuthorityFactory factory = FactoryFinder.getCRSAuthorityFactory(authority, null);
Set<String> codes = factory.getAuthorityCodes(CoordinateReferenceSystem.class);
String code = ...choose a code here...
CoordinateReferenceSystem crs = factory.createCoordinateReferenceSystem(code);

Parameters:
authority - The authority name (for example "EPSG").
Returns:
The set of supported codes. May be empty, but never null.

getSupportedAuthorities

public static Set<String> getSupportedAuthorities(boolean returnAliases)
Returns the set of the authority identifiers supported by registered authority factories. This method search only for CRS authority factories.

Parameters:
returnAliases - If true, the set will contain all identifiers for each authority. If false, only the first one
Returns:
The set of supported authorities. May be empty, but never null.
Since:
2.3.1

decode

public static CoordinateReferenceSystem decode(String code)
                                        throws NoSuchAuthorityCodeException,
                                               FactoryException
Return a Coordinate Reference System for the specified code. Note that the code needs to mention the authority. Examples:
 EPSG:1234
 AUTO:42001, ..., ..., ...
 
If there is more than one factory implementation for the same authority, then all additional factories are fallbacks to be used only when the first acceptable factory failed to create the requested CRS object.

CRS objects created by previous calls to this method are cached in a buffer using weak references. Subsequent calls to this method with the same authority code should be fast, unless the CRS object has been garbage collected.

Parameters:
code - The Coordinate Reference System authority code.
Returns:
The Coordinate Reference System for the provided code.
Throws:
NoSuchAuthorityCodeException - If the code could not be understood.
FactoryException - if the CRS creation failed for an other reason.

                                        throws NoSuchAuthorityCodeException,
                                               FactoryException
Return a Coordinate Reference System for the specified code, maybe forcing the axis order to (longitude, latitude). The code argument value is parsed as in "decode(code)". The longitudeFirst argument value controls the hints to be given to the factory finder as in the following pseudo-code:

 if (longitudeFirst) {
     hints.put(Hints.FORCE_LONGITUDE_FIRST_AXIS_ORDER, Boolean.TRUE);
 } else {
     // Do not set the FORCE_LONGITUDE_FIRST_AXIS_ORDER hint to FALSE.
     // Left it unset, which means "use system default".
 }
 
The following table compare this method longitudeFirst argument with the hint meaning:

This method argument Hint value Meaning
true TRUE All coordinate reference systems are forced to (longitude, latitude) axis order.
false null Coordinate reference systems may or may not be forced to (longitude, latitude) axis order. The behavior depends on user setting, for example the value of the "org.geotools.referencing.forceXY" system property.
FALSE Forcing (longitude, latitude) axis order is not allowed, no matter the value of the "org.geotools.referencing.forceXY" system property.

Parameters:
code - The Coordinate Reference System authority code.
longitudeFirst - true if axis order should be forced to (longitude, latitude). Note that false means "use default", not "latitude first".
Returns:
The Coordinate Reference System for the provided code.
Throws:

                                       throws FactoryException
Grab a transform between two Coordinate Reference Systems. This convenience method is a shorthand for the following:
FactoryFinder.getCoordinateOperationFactory(null).createOperation(sourceCRS, targetCRS).getMathTransform();
Note that some metadata like positional accuracy are lost by this method. If those metadata are wanted, use the coordinate operation factory directly.

Sample use:

MathTransform transform = CRS.findMathTransform( CRS.decode("EPSG:42102"), CRS.decode("EPSG:4326") );

Parameters:
sourceCRS - The source CRS.
targetCRS - The target CRS.

If the lenient argument is true, then this method will not throw a "Bursa-Wolf parameters required" exception during datum shifts if the Bursa-Wolf paramaters are not specified. Instead it will assume a no datum shift.

Parameters:
sourceCRS - The source CRS.
targetCRS - The target CRS.
lenient - true if the math transform should be created even when there is no information available for a datum shift. The default value is false.
Returns:

                          throws TransformException
Transforms the given envelope to the specified CRS. If the given envelope is null, or the envelope CRS is null, or the given target CRS is null, or the transform is identity, then the envelope is returned unchanged. Otherwise a new transformed envelope is returned.

Don't use this method if there is many envelopes to transform. This method is provided as a convenience when there is only one envelope to transform between CRS that can't be known in advance. If there is many of them or if the CRS are restricted to known values, get the coordinate operation or math transform once for ever and invoke one of the methods below instead (unless if performance is not a concern).

Parameters:
envelope - The envelope to transform (may be null).
targetCRS - The target CRS (may be null).
Returns:
A new transformed envelope, or directly envelope if no transformation was required.
Throws:
TransformException - If a transformation was required and failed.

                                 throws TransformException
Transforms an envelope using the given math transform. The transformation is only approximative. Note that the returned envelope may not have the same number of dimensions than the original envelope.

Note that this method can not handle the case where the envelope contains the North or South pole, or when it cross the ±180° longitude, because math transforms do not carry suffisient informations. For a more robust envelope transformation, use transform(CoordinateOperation, Envelope) instead.

Parameters:
transform - The transform to use.
envelope - Envelope to transform, or null. This envelope will not be modified.
Returns:
The transformed envelope, or null if envelope was null.
Throws:
TransformException - if a transform failed.
Since:

                                 throws TransformException
Transforms an envelope using the given coordinate operation. The transformation is only approximative. It may be bigger than the smallest possible bounding box, but should not be smaller. Note that the returned envelope may not have the same number of dimensions than the original envelope.

This method can handle the case where the envelope contains the North or South pole, or when it cross the ±180° longitude.

Parameters:
operation - The operation to use. Source and target dimension must be 2.
envelope - Envelope to transform, or null. This envelope will not be modified.
Returns:
The transformed envelope, or null if envelope was null.
Throws:
TransformException - if a transform failed.

                             throws TransformException
Transforms a rectangular envelope using the given math transform. The transformation is only approximative. Invoking this method is equivalent to invoking the following:

transform(transform, new GeneralEnvelope(envelope)).toRectangle2D()

Note that this method can not handle the case where the rectangle contains the North or South pole, or when it cross the ±180° longitude, because math transforms do not carry suffisient informations. For a more robust rectangle transformation, use transform(CoordinateOperation, Rectangle2D, Rectangle2D) instead.

Parameters:
transform - The transform to use. Source and target dimension must be 2.
envelope - The rectangle to transform (may be null).
destination - The destination rectangle (may be envelope). If null, a new rectangle will be created and returned.
Returns:
destination, or a new rectangle if destination was non-null and envelope was null.
Throws:
TransformException - if a transform failed.

public static CRS.AxisOrder getAxisOrder(CoordinateReferenceSystem crs,
                                         boolean useBaseGeoCRS)
Determines the axis ordering of a specified crs object.

The useBaseGeoCRS parameter is used to control behaviour for projected crs. When set to true the comparison will use the coordinate system for the underlying geographic crs object for the comparison. When set to false the comparison will use the coordinate system from projected crs itself.

Parameters:
crs - The coordinate reference system.
useBaseGeoCRS - Controls whether the base geo crs is used for projected crs.
Returns:
One of CRS.AxisOrder.EAST_NORTH, AxisOrder@NORTH_EAST, or CRS.AxisOrder.INAPPLICABLE

main

public static void main(String[] args)
Prints to the standard output stream some information about coordinate reference systems specified by their authority codes. This method can be invoked from the command line in order to test the authority factory content for some specific CRS.

By default, this method prints all enumerated objects as Well Known Text. However this method can prints different kind of information if an option such as -factories, -codes or -bursawolfs is provided.

Usage: java org.geotools.referencing.CRS [options] [codes]
Options:

-authority=name
Uses the specified authority factory, for example "EPSG". The authority name can be any of the authorities listed by the -factories option. If this option is not specified, then the default is all factories.

-bursawolfs codes
Lists the Bursa-Wolf parameters for the specified CRS ou datum objects. For some transformations, there is more than one set of Bursa-Wolf parameters available. The standard Well Known Text format prints only what look like the "main" one. This option display all Bursa-Wolf parameters in a table for a given object.

-codes
Lists all available authority codes. Use the -authority option if the list should be restricted to a single authority.

-colors
Enable syntax coloring on ANSI X3.64 compatible (aka ECMA-48 and ISO/IEC 6429) terminal. This option tries to highlight most of the elements relevant to the equalsIgnoreMetadata method, with the addition of Bursa-Wolf parameters.

-encoding=charset
Sets the console encoding for this application output. This value has no impact on data, but may improve the output quality. This is not needed on Linux terminal using UTF-8 encoding (tip: the terminus font gives good results).

-dependencies
Lists authority factory dependencies as a tree.

-factories
Lists all availables CRS authority factories.

-forcexy
Force "longitude first" axis order.

-help
Prints the list of options.

-locale=name
Formats texts in the specified locale.

-operations sourceCRS targetCRS
Prints all available coordinate operations between a pair of CRS. This option prints only the operations explicitly defined in a database like EPSG. There is sometime many such operations, and sometime none (in which case this option prints nothing - it doesn't try to find an operation by itself).

-transform sourceCRS targetCRS
Prints the preferred math transform between a pair of CRS. At the difference of the "-operations" option, this option pick up only one operation (usually the most accurate one), inferring it if none were explicitly specified in the database.

Examples (assuming that "CRS" is a shortcut for "java org.geotools.referencing.CRS"):

CRS EPSG:4181 EPSG:4326 CRS:84 AUTO:42001,30,0
Prints the "Luxembourg 1930" CRS, the "WGS 84" CRS (from EPSG database), the ""WGS84" CRS (from the Web Map Service specification) and a UTM projection in WKT format.

CRS -authority=EPSG 4181 4326
Prints the "Luxembourg 1930" and "WGS 84" CRS, looking only in the EPSG database (so there is no need to prefix the codes with "EPSG").

CRS -colors EPSG:7411
Prints the "NTF (Paris) / Lambert zone II + NGF Lallemand" CRS with syntax coloring enabled.

CRS -bursawolfs EPSG:4230
Prints three set of Bursa-Wolf parameters for a CRS based on "European Datum 1950".

CRS -authority=EPSG -operations 4230 4326
Prints all operations declared in the EPSG database from "ED50" to "WGS 84" geographic CRS. Note that for this particular pair of CRS, there is close to 40 operations declared in the EPSG database. This method prints only the ones that Geotools can handle.

CRS -transform EPSG:4230 EPSG:4326
Prints the math transform that Geotools would use by default for coordinate transformation from "ED50" to "WGS 84".

Parameters:
args - Options and list of object codes to display.
