class  QgsInternalGeometryEngine 
A geometry is the spatial representation of a feature.
Since QGIS 2.10, QgsGeometry acts as a generic container for geometry objects. QgsGeometry is implicitly shared, so making copies of geometries is inexpensive. The geometry container class can also be stored inside a QVariant object.
The actual geometry representation is stored as a QgsAbstractGeometry within the container, and can be accessed via the get() method or set using the set() method.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::densifyByDistance  (  double  distance  )  const 
Densifies the geometry by adding regularly placed extra nodes inside each segment so that the maximum distance between any two nodes does not exceed the specified distance.
E.g. specifying a distance 3 would cause the segment [0 0] > [10 0] to be converted to [0 0] > [2.5 0] > [5 0] > [7.5 0] > [10 0], since 3 extra nodes are required on the segment and spacing these at 2.5 increments allows them to be evenly spaced over the segment.

double QgsGeometry::hausdorffDistanceDensify  (  const QgsGeometry &  geom,

)  const 
Returns the Hausdorff distance between this geometry and geom.
This is basically a measure of how similar or dissimilar 2 geometries are.
This function accepts a densifyFraction argument. The function performs a segment densification before computing the discrete Hausdorff distance. The densifyFraction parameter sets the fraction by which to densify each segment. Each segment will be split into a number of equallength subsegments, whose fraction of the total length is closest to the given fraction.
This method can be used when the default approximation provided by hausdorffDistance() is not sufficient. Decreasing the densifyFraction parameter will make the distance returned approach the true Hausdorff distance for the geometries.
In case of error 1 will be returned.

int  maxIterations = 1000 , 

double  angleThreshold = 15.0 

)  const 
Attempts to orthogonalize a line or polygon geometry by shifting vertices to make the geometries angles either right angles or flat lines.
This is an iterative algorithm which will loop until either the vertices are within a specified tolerance of right angles or a set number of maximum iterations is reached. The angle threshold parameter specifies how close to a right angle or straight line an angle must be before it is attempted to be straightened.

bool QgsGeometry::overlaps  (  const QgsGeometry &  geometry  )  const 
Test for if geometry overlaps another (uses GEOS)
Definition at line 1216 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::pointOnSurface  (  )  const 
Returns a point guaranteed to lie on the surface of a geometry.
While the centroid() of a geometry may be located outside of the geometry itself (e.g., for concave shapes), the point on surface will always be inside the geometry.
If the input is a NULL geometry, the output will also be a NULL geometry.
If an error was encountered while creating the result, more information can be retrieved by calling error()
on the returned geometry.
Definition at line 1914 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::poleOfInaccessibility  (  double  precision, 
double *  distanceToBoundary = nullptr 

)  const 
Calculates the approximate pole of inaccessibility for a surface, which is the most distant internal point from the boundary of the surface.
This function uses the 'polylabel' algorithm (Vladimir Agafonkin, 2016), which is an iterative approach guaranteed to find the true pole of inaccessibility within a specified tolerance. More precise tolerances require more iterations and will take longer to calculate. Optionally, the distance to the polygon boundary from the pole can be stored.
Definition at line 1929 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.

static 
Creates a GeometryCollection geometry containing possible polygons formed from the constituent linework of a set of geometries.
The input geometries must be fully noded (i.e. nodes exist at every common intersection of the geometries). The easiest way to ensure this is to first call unaryUnion() on the set of input geometries and then pass the result to polygonize(). An empty geometry will be returned in the case of errors.
Definition at line 2412 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
bool QgsGeometry::removeDuplicateNodes  (  double  epsilon = 4 * std::numeric_limits<double>::epsilon() , 
bool  useZValues = false 

) 
Removes duplicate nodes from the geometry, wherever removing the nodes does not result in a degenerate geometry.
The epsilon parameter specifies the tolerance for coordinates when determining that vertices are identical.
By default, z values are not considered when detecting duplicate nodes. E.g. two nodes with the same x and y coordinate but different z values will still be considered duplicate and one will be removed. If useZValues is true, then the z values are also tested and nodes with the same x and y but different z will be maintained.
Note that duplicate nodes are not tested between different parts of a multipart geometry. E.g. a multipoint geometry with overlapping points will not be changed by this method.
The function will return true if nodes were removed, or false if no duplicate nodes were found.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::removeInteriorRings  (  double  minimumAllowedArea = 1  )  const 
Removes the interior rings from a (multi)polygon geometry.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::smooth  (  unsigned int  iterations = 1 , 
double  offset = 0.25 , 

double  minimumDistance = 1.0 , 

double  maxAngle = 180.0 

)  const 
Smooths a geometry by rounding off corners using the Chaikin algorithm.
This operation roughly doubles the number of vertices in a geometry.
If input geometries contain Z or M values, these will also be smoothed and the output geometry will retain the same dimensionality as the input geometry.
iterations  number of smoothing iterations to run. More iterations results in a smoother geometry 
offset  fraction of line to create new vertices along, between 0 and 1.0, e.g., the default value of 0.25 will create new vertices 25% and 75% along each line segment of the geometry for each iteration. Smaller values result in "tighter" smoothing. 
minimumDistance  minimum segment length to apply smoothing to 
maxAngle  maximum angle at node (0180) at which smoothing will be applied

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::snappedToGrid  (  double  hSpacing, 
double  vSpacing,  
double  dSpacing = 0 , 

double  mSpacing = 0 

)  const 
Returns a new geometry with all points or vertices snapped to the closest point of the grid.
If the gridified geometry could not be calculated (or was totally collapsed) an empty geometry will be returned. Note that snapping to grid may generate an invalid geometry in some corner cases. It can also be thought as rounding the edges and it may be useful for removing errors.
hSpacing  Horizontal spacing of the grid (x axis). 0 to disable. 
vSpacing  Vertical spacing of the grid (y axis). 0 to disable. 
dSpacing  Depth spacing of the grid (z axis). 0 (default) to disable.

Definition at line 590 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::subdivide  (  int  maxNodes = 256  )  const 
Subdivides the geometry.
The returned geometry will be a collection containing subdivided parts from the original geometry, where no part has more then the specified maximum number of nodes (maxNodes).
This is useful for dividing a complex geometry into less complex parts, which are better able to be spatially indexed and faster to perform further operations such as intersects on. The returned geometry parts may not be valid and may contain selfintersections.
The minimum allowed value for maxNodes is 8.
Curved geometries will be segmentized before subdivision.
If the input is a NULL geometry, the output will also be a NULL geometry.
If an error was encountered while creating the result, more information can be retrieved by calling error()
on the returned geometry.
Definition at line 1982 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::symDifference  (  const QgsGeometry &  geometry  )  const 
Returns a geometry representing the points making up this geometry that do not make up other.

If an error was encountered while creating the result, more information can be retrieved by calling error()
on the returned geometry.
Definition at line 2203 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::taperedBuffer  (  double  startWidth, 
double  endWidth,  
int  segments  
)  const 
Calculates a variable width buffer ("tapered buffer") for a (multi)curve geometry.
The buffer begins at a width of startWidth at the start of each curve, and ends at a width of endWidth. Note that unlike buffer() methods, startWidth and endWidth are the diameter of the buffer at these points, not the radius.
The segments argument specifies the number of segments to approximate quartercircle curves in the buffer.
Non (multi)curve input geometries will return a null output geometry.

QgsGeometry::OperationResult QgsGeometry::transform  (  const QgsCoordinateTransform &  ct, 
QgsCoordinateTransform::TransformDirection  direction = QgsCoordinateTransform::ForwardTransform , 

bool  transformZ = false 

) 
Transforms this geometry as described by the coordinate transform ct.
The transformation defaults to a forward transform, but the direction can be swapped by setting the direction argument.
By default, zcoordinates are not transformed, even if the coordinate transform includes a vertical datum transformation. To transform zcoordinates, set transformZ to true. This requires that the z coordinates in the geometry represent height relative to the vertical datum of the source CRS (generally ellipsoidal heights) and are expressed in its vertical units (generally meters).

double  mTranslate = 0.0 , 

double  mScale = 1.0 

) 
Transforms the x and y components of the geometry using a QTransform object t.
Optionally, the geometry's z values can be scaled via zScale and translated via zTranslate. Similarly, mvalues can be scaled via mScale and translated via mTranslate.
Definition at line 2464 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
void QgsGeometry::transformVertices  (  const std::function< QgsPoint(const QgsPoint &) > &  transform  ) 
Transforms the vertices from the geometry in place, applying the transform function to every vertex.
Depending on the transform used, this may result in an invalid geometry.
Transform functions are not permitted to alter the dimensionality of vertices. If a transform which adds (or removes) z/m values is desired, first call the corresponding addZValue() or addMValue() function to change the geometry's dimensionality and then transform.
Definition at line 2649 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry::OperationResult QgsGeometry::translate  (  double  dx,

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::variableWidthBufferByM  (  int  segments  )  const 
Calculates a variable width buffer for a (multi)linestring geometry, where the width at each node is taken from the linestring m values.
The segments argument specifies the number of segments to approximate quartercircle curves in the buffer.

If a matching vertex was found, it will be stored in id.
Returns true if vertex was found.
Definition at line 2589 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
int QgsGeometry::vertexNrFromVertexId  (  QgsVertexId  id  )  const 
Returns the vertex number corresponding to a vertex id.
The vertex numbers start at 0, so a return value of 0 corresponds to the first vertex.
Returns 1 if a corresponding vertex could not be found.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::voronoiDiagram  (  const QgsGeometry &  extent = QgsGeometry() , 
double  tolerance = 0.0 , 

bool  edgesOnly = false 

)  const 
Creates a Voronoi diagram for the nodes contained within the geometry.
Returns the Voronoi polygons for the nodes contained within the geometry. If extent is specified then it will be used as a clipping envelope for the diagram. If no extent is set then the clipping envelope will be automatically calculated. In either case the diagram will be clipped to the larger of the provided envelope OR the envelope surrounding all input nodes. The tolerance parameter specifies an optional snapping tolerance which can be used to improve the robustness of the diagram calculation. If edgesOnly is true than line string boundary geometries will be returned instead of polygons. An empty geometry will be returned if the diagram could not be calculated.
