Interface IZCollection

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Subinterfaces:
IZ, IZ2
All Known Implementing Classes:
MultiPatch, Multipoint, Polygon, Polyline

public interface IZCollection
extends Serializable

Provides access to operations on Z-aware geometries.

Description

IZCollection supports operations performed on a collection of geometry objects that have Z values. For IZCollection operations to be performed, the object must be ZAware and have non-NaN Zs.

When To Use

If you are using a development language that does not support C style arrays, use IGeometryBridge instead. The IGeometryBridge interface solves that problem allowing you to pass safe arrays instead.

Method Detail

getZMin

double getZMin()
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
The minimum Z value.

Description

Returns the minimum Z attribute contained within the ZAware object collection.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
The zMin
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getZMax

double getZMax()
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
The maximum Z value.

Description

Returns the maximum Z attribute contained within the ZAware object collection.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
The zMax
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

multiplyZs

void multiplyZs(double factor)
                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
Multiplies all the Z values by a factor.

Description

Multiplies all Zs within the ZAware collection by a given input factor. This is analgous to scaling spatial coordinates.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Parameters:
factor - The factor (in)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

offsetZs

void offsetZs(double offset)
              throws IOException,
                     AutomationException
Offsets all the Z values by an offset value.

Description

Offsets all Zs within the ZAware collection by a given input factor. This is analgous to moving spatial coordinates.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Parameters:
offset - The offset (in)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.
