geometry within another geometry

Jun 29, 2011 at 6:03 AM

I have used the intersection features of sharpmap to tell if certain geometries intersect a layer, is there any way to tell if one geometry is entirely within another geometry?

SharpMap only computes spatial relations on the geometries bounding boxes. If you need to do that for the geometry you need the aid of either

  • NetTopologySuite
    A geometry converter is provided in the SharpMap.Extensions project.
  • SharpMap.SqlServerSpatialObjects

With both you can compute all kind of spatial relations... The function you are looking for is Contains( other )
