Class AxisDirection

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<AxisDirection>

    public final class AxisDirection
    extends CodeList<AxisDirection>
    The direction of positive increments in the coordinate value for a coordinate system axis. This direction is exact in some cases, and is approximate in other cases.

    Some coordinate systems use non-standard orientations. For example, the first axis in South African grids usually points West, instead of East. This information is obviously relevant for algorithms converting South African grid coordinates into Lat/Long.
