Class JGeoRasterMeta

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.spatial.georaster.JGeoRasterMeta


public class JGeoRasterMeta
extends java.lang.Object

The GeoRaster Java library defines a full set of Java classes to store and represent all metadata of a GeoRaster object. A hierarchical mapping is built between these Java classes and major XML elements defined in the GeoRaster XML schema as below:

                                     JGeoRasterMeta
                                   (georasterMetadata)
                                            |
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      |            |             |                        |                         |              |
  ObjectInfo   RasterInfo  SpatialReferenceInfo    TemporalReferenceInfo    bandReferenceInfo   LayerInfo
 (objectInfo) (rasterInfo)(spatialReferenceInfo)  (temporalReferenceInfo)  (bandReferenceInfo) (layerInfo)
                                                                                                   |
                                                                                             --------------
                                                                                             |             |
                                                                                         SubLayerInfo    Vector of SubLayerInfo
                                                                                        (objectLayer)    (subLayer)
 

In these Java classes, all necessary methods are created to allow you to get/set value of each attribute defined in the specific mapped XML element, and through hierarchical structure above, you can easily manipulate all metadata, for example, the following sample code is used to get NODATA value defined in the objectLayer

   ...
   //reading a GeoRaster object from database based on a query
   ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery("SELECT a.georaster FROM georaster_table a where a.georaster.rasterdatatable='RDT' and a.georaster.rasterid=1");
   STRUCT geor = (oracle.sql.STRUCT) rs.getObject(1);
   //construct a JGeoRaster object 
   JGeoRaster geoRaster = new JGeoRaster(geor);
   //get GeoRasterImage instance
   JGeoRasterMeta geoRasterMeta=geoRaster.getMetadataObject();
   //get NODATA value defined in the objectLayer
   Vector nodata=geoRasterMeta.getLayerInfo().getObjectLayer().getNODATAValue();
   ...
 

JGeoRasterMeta is a Java class mapped to the XML element georasterMetadata in the Oracle Spatial GeoRaster metadata, and it is the root access point of the whole hierarchical structure above.

A JGeoRasterMeta object is always associated with a JGeoRaster object; it cannot be constructed directly. When a JGeoRaster is initiated, the metadata XML string will be retrieved from the database server and populated into the JGeoRasterMeta object and other related Java objects. After the JGeoRaster is initiated successfully, the following method defined in the JGeoRaster is used to retrieve an instance of JGeoRasterMeta:

      public JGeoRasterMeta getMetadataObject()
 

Inside the JGeoRasterMeta class, all get***Info() methods are used to get instances of second level XML elements, but there is possibility that the return value is null, because some second level elements are optional in the XML schema, such as bandReferenceInfo. In this case, if you want to add a missing second level element into metadata, all init***Info() methods are designed to construct and add an empty second level element based on default value defined in the XML schema.

In order to avoid mistaken modification on some critical metadata attributes, which might result in raster data corruption, the following attributes are not allowed to be changed in each second level XML element directly:

        DimensionSize
        CellDepth
        Interleaving
        Blocking
        BlockSize
        PyramidLevel
        PyramidResampling
        Compression
 

However, a method init() is defined in the JGeoRasterMeta class, and provides a way to initiate these critical metadata. The init() method actually is a mapping of the server side PL/SQL function createTemplate(), which takes the rasterSpec string to initialize basic metadata.

Initiates a JGeoRasterMeta object based on a general pattern of metadata of a JGeoRaster object.
Parameters:
rasterType - a 5-digit rasterType attribute value
rasterSpec - a string with raster specification parameters. The rasterSpec parameter must be a string that contains one or more of the following keyword-value pairs:

dimSize (for example, dimSize=(256,256,3)): Specifies the row, column, and band dimension sizes. This keyword must be specified and must be consistent with the rasterType parameter.

ultCoord (for example, ultCoord=(0,0,0)): Specifies the upper-left coordinate integer values for the GeoRaster object. The default value is 0 for all the dimensions. The value for the band dimension must be 0.

cellDepth (for example, cellDepth=8BIT_S): Specifies the cell depth of the GeoRaster object. Must be one of the following values (with _U indicating unsigned and _S indicating signed): 1BIT, 2BIT, 4BIT, 8BIT_U, 8BIT_S, 16BIT_U, 16BIT_S, 32BIT_U, 32BIT_S, 32BIT_REAL, or 64BIT_REAL. The default value is 8BIT_U.

interleaving (for example, interleaving=BIP): Specifies the interleaving type. Must be one of the following values: BSQ, BIL, or BIP. The default value is BSQ.

blocking (for example, blocking=TRUE): Specified whether the GeoRaster object is blocked. Must be either TRUE or FALSE. The default value is FALSE if blocksize is not specified.

blocksize (for example, blocksize=(128,128,3)): Specifies the block size for each dimension of the GeoRaster object. The values must be non-negative integers. A zero block size value means the corresponding dimension size is the real value. Is blocking is set to TRUE but blocksize is not specified, the GeoRaster object's blocksize is (256,256,B), where B is the band dimension size.

rLevel (for example, rLevel=2): Specifies the maximum pyramid reduction level. Must be a positive integer. If you specify this keyword, the pyramid type is set to DECREASE in the metadata; otherwise the pyramid type is set to NONE.

resampling (for example, resampling=NN): Specifies the resampling method. Must be one of the following: NN (value of the nearest neighbor cell in the original GeoRaster object), BILINEAR (distance-weighted average of the 4 nearest cells in the original GeoRaster object), AVERAGE4 (simple average of the 4 nearest cells in the original GeoRaster object), AVERAGE16 (simple average of the 16 nearest cells in the original GeoRaster object), CUBIC (cubic convolution of the 16 nearest cells in the original GeoRaster object). This keyword is ignored if rLevel is not set.

compression (for example, compression=JPEG-B): Specifies the compression type of the GeoRaster object. Must be one of the following: NONE, DEFLATE, JPEG-B, or JPEG-F. The default value is NONE.

quality (for example, quality=75): Specifies the JPEG compression quality, which is the degree of lossiness caused by the compression. Must be an integer from 0 (lowest quality) through 100 (highest quality). This keyword is ignored when the compression keyword is not specified or is not set to one of the JPEG types.

Throws:
GeoRasterException

public STRUCT storeToDB()
                 throws java.lang.Exception
