public interface CRSAuthorityFactory
extends AuthorityFactory

Creates coordinate reference systems using authority codes. External authorities are used to manage definitions of objects used in this interface. The definitions of these objects are referenced using code strings. A commonly used authority is EPSG, which is also used in the GeoTIFF standard.

Method Detail

createCoordinateReferenceSystem

@UML(identifier="createHorizontalCoordinateSystem",
     specification=OGC_01009)
CoordinateReferenceSystem createCoordinateReferenceSystem(String code)
                                                          throws NoSuchAuthorityCodeException,
                                                                 FactoryException
Returns an arbitrary coordinate reference system from a code. If the coordinate reference system type is know at compile time, it is recommended to invoke the most precise method instead of this one (for example  createGeographicCRS(code)  instead of  createCoordinateReferenceSystem(code)  if the caller know he is asking for a geographic coordinate reference system).

Parameters:
code - Value allocated by authority.
Returns:
The coordinate reference system for the given code.
Throws:
NoSuchAuthorityCodeException - if the specified code was not found.
FactoryException - if the object creation failed for some other reason.
