Module: RGeo::Feature::Point
Overview
SFS 1.1 Description
A Point is a 0dimensional geometric object and represents a single location in coordinate space. A Point has an xcoordinate value and a ycoordinate value.
The boundary of a Point is the empty set.
Notes
Point 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.
Some implementations may support higher dimensional points.
Some libraries, such as GEOS, support “empty” points. Such objects might be returned as, for example, the centroid of an empty MultiPolygon. The SFS does not clearly define or even acknowledge the existence of such a type, so RGeo will currently generally replace them with empty GeometryCollection objects. Therefore, currently, every RGeo Point object represents an actual location with real coordinates.
