Geotools provides some convenience methods for fetching specific coordinate
values in standard units. For example the
class provides a
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
Class Summary Class Description AbstractCSThe set of coordinate system axes that spans a given coordinate space. DefaultAffineCSA two- or three-dimensional coordinate system with straight axes that are not necessarily orthogonal. DefaultCartesianCSA 1-, 2-, or 3-dimensional coordinate system. DefaultCompoundCSA coordinate system made of two or more independent coordinate systems. DefaultCoordinateSystemAxisDefinition of a coordinate system axis. DefaultCylindricalCSA three-dimensional coordinate system consisting of a polar coordinate system extended by a straight coordinate axis perpendicular to the plane spanned by the polar coordinate system. DefaultEllipsoidalCSA two- or three-dimensional coordinate system in which position is specified by geodetic latitude, geodetic longitude, and (in the three-dimensional case) ellipsoidal height. DefaultLinearCSA one-dimensional coordinate system that consists of the points that lie on the single axis described. DefaultPolarCSA two-dimensional coordinate system in which position is specified by the distance from the origin and the angle between the line from the origin to a point and a reference direction. DefaultSphericalCSA three-dimensional coordinate system with one distance measured from the origin and two angular coordinates. DefaultTimeCSA one-dimensional coordinate system containing a single time axis, used to describe the temporal position of a point in the specified time units from a specified time origin. DefaultUserDefinedCSA two- or three-dimensional coordinate system that consists of any combination of coordinate axes not covered by any other Coordinate System type. DefaultVerticalCSA one-dimensional coordinate system used to record the heights (or depths) of points. DirectionAlongMeridianParses axis direction of the kind "South along 90 deg East".
