@UML(identifier="GM_Arc", specification=ISO_19107) public interface Arc extends ArcString
NOTE: In the model, anIn its simplest representation, the three points in the control point sequence for an
Arcis a subclass of
ArcString, being a trivial arc string consisting of only one arc. This may be counter-intuitive in the sense that subclasses are often thought of as more complex than their superclass (with additional methods and attributes). An
Arcis simpler than a arc string in that it has less data, but it is more complex in that it can return geometric information such as "center", "start angle", and "end angle". This additional computational complexity forces the subclassing to be the way it is. In addition the "is type of" semantics works this way and not the other.
Arcshall consist of, in order, the initial point on the arc, some point on the arc neither at the start or end, and the end point of the
Arc. If additional points are given, then all points must lie on the circle defined by any 3 non-colinear points in the control point array. All points shall lie on the same circle, and shall be given in the control point array in the order in which they occur on the arc.
NOTE: The use of the term "midPoint" for the center position of the control point sequence is not meant to require that the position be the geometric midpoint of the arc. This is the best choice for this position from a computational stability perspective, but it is not absolutely necessary for the mathematics to work.

Arc(especially if the underlying arc has a very large radius). Implementations may choose an appropriate course of action in such cases.
