          extended byjwo.landserf.process.VectorToRasterThread
All Implemented Interfaces:
JWInterruptionListener, Runnable

public class VectorToRasterThread
extends LSThread

Performs a vector to raster transformation. Requires an input vector and raster. The raster provided determines the resolution of the transformed data. Priority is given to points over lines over areas. In other words, all points appear 'on top' of lines which appear 'on top' of areas.

Constructor Detail


public VectorToRasterThread(GISFrame gisFrame,
                            VectorMap vectorMap,
                            RasterMap rasterMap)
Transforms the given vectormap into a raster.

gisFrame - GUI in which to report results.
vectorMap - Vector to transform.
rasterMap - Raster holding transformed data. This raster defines bounds and resolution of output.
Method Detail


public void doProcessing()
Converts the vector into a raster. The results of the transformation are stored in the raster map supplied to the constructor or can be retrieved by calling gisFrame.getRaster1() using the GIS frame supplied to the constructor.

Note that this method will be called automatically if this is run as a threaded process (e.g. myPitRemovalThread.start()). Alternatively it can be called directly as a non-threaded process.

doProcessing in class LSThread
