Name 
Description 

Densify 
Converts this polycurve into a piecewise linear approximation of itself. 

DensifyByAngle 
Converts this polycurve into a piecewise linear approximation of itself. Vertices are introduced at points where the included angle between tangents at those point is maxAngleDeviation. 

Dimension 
The topological dimension of this geometry. 

Envelope 
Creates a copy of this geometry's envelope and returns it. 

FromPoint 
The 'from' point of the curve. 

Generalize 
Generalizes this polycurve using the DouglasPeucker algorithm. 

GeometryType 
The type of this geometry. 

GeoNormalize 
Shifts longitudes, if need be, into a continuous range of 360 degrees. 

GeoNormalizeFromLongitude 
Normalizes longitudes into a continuous range containing the longitude. This method is obsolete. 

GetSubcurve 
Extracts a portion of this curve into a new curve. 

IsClosed 
Indicates if 'from' and 'to' points (of each part) are identical. 

IsEmpty 
Indicates whether this geometry contains any points. 

Length 
The length of the curve. 

Project 
Projects this geometry into a new spatial reference. 

QueryEnvelope 
Copies this geometry's envelope properties into the specified envelope. 

QueryFromPoint 
Copies this curve's 'from' point to the input point. 

QueryNormal 
Constructs a line normal to a curve from a point at a specified distance along the curve. 

QueryPoint 
Copies to outPoint the properties of a point on the curve at a specified distance from the beginning of the curve. 

QueryPointAndDistance 
Finds the point on the curve closest to inPoint, then copies that point to outPoint; optionally calculates related items. 

QueryTangent 
Constructs a line tangent to a curve from a point at a specified distance along the curve. 

QueryToPoint 
Copies the curve's 'to' point into the input point. 

ReverseOrientation 
Reverses the parameterization of the curve ('from' point becomes 'to' point, first segment becomes last segment, etc). 

SetEmpty 
Removes all points from this geometry. 

Smooth 
Converts this curve into a smooth curve containing only Bezier curve segments. 

SnapToSpatialReference 
Moves points of this geometry so that they can be represented in the precision of the geometry's associated spatial reference system. 

SpatialReference 
The spatial reference associated with this geometry. 

SplitAtDistance 
Introduces a new vertex into this polyline at a specified distance from the beginning of the polyline. 

SplitAtDistances 
Introduces new vertices into this polyline at specified distances from the beginning of the polyline. 

SplitAtPoint 
Introduces a new vertex into this polyline at the location on it closest to the input point. 

SplitAtPoints 
Introduces new vertices into this polyline at the locations on it closest to the input points. Do not consider points farther than cutoffDistance from the polyline. 

ToPoint 
The 'to' point of the curve. 

Weed 
Generalizes using a small tolerance based upon either the system units of the geometry's spatial reference, or the geometry's bounding box.
