Interface ICompositeGeoTransformation

All Superinterfaces:
IGeoTransformation, ITransformation, Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
CompositeGeoTransformation

public interface ICompositeGeoTransformation
extends IGeoTransformation, Serializable

Provides access to members that control a set of geographic transformations.

Description

Sometimes it is necessary to transform between two geographic coordinate systems where a direct transformation does not exist. A composite geotransformation allows you to create a 'chain' of existing or custom transformations. Each transformation in the set must have its direction set properly.

Remarks

Of the ITransformation interface, only the TransformPointsFF method is implemented.
