Class BursaWolfParameters

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable, Cloneable

    public class BursaWolfParameters
    extends Formattable
    implements Cloneable, Serializable
    Parameters for a geographic transformation between two datum. The Bursa Wolf parameters should be applied to geocentric coordinates, where the X axis points towards the Greenwich Prime Meridian, the Y axis points East, and the Z axis points North. The "Bursa-Wolf" formula is expressed in matrix form with 7 parameters:

    • Method Detail

      • isIdentity

        public boolean isIdentity()
        Returns true if this Bursa Wolf parameters performs no operation. This is true when all parameters are set to zero.
        true if the parameters describe no operation.
      • isTranslation

        public boolean isTranslation()
        Returns true if this Bursa Wolf parameters contains only translation terms.
        true if the parameters describe to a translation only.
      • getAffineTransform

        public XMatrix getAffineTransform()
        Returns an affine transform that can be used to define this Bursa Wolf transformation. The formula is as follows:
         S = 1 + ppm/1000000
         [ X’ ]    [     S   -ez*S   +ey*S   dx ]  [ X ]
         [ Y’ ]  = [ +ez*S       S   -ex*S   dy ]  [ Y }
         [ Z’ ]    [ -ey*S   +ex*S       S   dz ]  [ Z ]
         [ 1  ]    [     0       0       0    1 ]  [ 1 ]
        This affine transform can be applied on geocentric coordinates.
        An affine transform created from the parameters.
      • setAffineTransform

        public void setAffineTransform​(Matrix matrix,
                                       double eps)
                                throws IllegalArgumentException
        Sets transformation info from the specified matrix, which must be affine. In addition, the matrix minus the last row and last column must be antisymmetric.
        matrix - The matrix to fit as a Bursa-Wolf construct.
