The different ways of producing a piecewise linear approximation to a curve.
Constant | Value | Description |
---|---|---|
esriCurveDensifyByLength | 0 | densify parameter is curve length increment. Output line segments will be no longer than this. This method cannot be used when constructing geodesic circles or ellipses. |
esriCurveDensifyByAngle | 1 | densify parameter is angle increment. Line segments will become shorter as the curvature increases. For geodesic ellipses, the angle is with respect to the reference circle. |
esriCurveDensifyByDeviation | 2 | densify parameter is deviation from true curve. Line segments of varying length will be generated. The curve parameter specifies the maximum allowable distance between a line segment and the portion of the curve that it is approximating. |
