Package org.geotools.referencing.cs

Coordinate systems implementation. An explanation for this package is provided in the OpenGIS® javadoc. The remaining discussion on this page is specific to the Geotools implementation.

Geotools provides some convenience methods for fetching specific coordinate values in standard units. For example the DefaultEllipsoidalCS class provides a getLongitude method that returns the longitude value in a given set of coordinates. This convenience method free the user from the task of finding which axis is for the longitude, and performing unit conversion.
