Interface ITransform3D

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
MultiPatch, Path, Point, Polygon, Polyline, Ring, TriangleFan, Triangles, TriangleStrip

public interface ITransform3D
extends Serializable

Provides access to methods for transforming 3D geometries using either specific parameters or arbitrary transformation objects.

Remarks

These methods are intended to be called against top-level geometries only (Point, Polyline, Polygon, MultiPatch). To call a method against a Segment/Path or Ring, first add the part to a Polyline or Polygon container, respectively, and then call the appropriate method against the container.
