Overview

SFS 1.1 Description

A MultiSurface is a 2-dimensional GeometryCollection whose elements are Surfaces. The interiors of any two Surfaces in a MultiSurface may not intersect. The boundaries of any two elements in a MultiSurface may intersect, at most, at a finite number of Points.

MultiSurface is a non-instantiable class in this International Standard. It defines a set of methods for its subclasses and is included for reasons of extensibility. The instantiable subclass of MultiSurface is MultiPolygon, corresponding to a collection of Polygons.

Notes

MultiSurface is defined as a module and is provided primarily for the sake of documentation. Implementations need not necessarily include this module itself. Therefore, you should not depend on the kind_of? method to check type. Instead, use the provided check_type class method (or === operator) defined in the Type module.

Instance Method Details

#areaObject

SFS 1.1 Description

#centroidObject

SFS 1.1 Description

The mathematical centroid for this MultiSurface as a Point. The result is not guaranteed to be on this MultiSurface.

Notes

Returns an object that supports the Point interface.
