Description
Interface Summary  

BoundaryNodeRule  An interface for rules which determine whether node points
which are in boundaries of Lineal geometry components
are in the boundary of the parent geometry collection. 
PointInRing  An interface for classes which test whether a Coordinate lies inside
a ring. 
Class Summary

BoundaryNodeRule.EndPointBoundaryNodeRule  A BoundaryNodeRule which specifies that any points which are endpoints
of lineal components are in the boundary of the
parent geometry. 
BoundaryNodeRule.Mod2BoundaryNodeRule  A BoundaryNodeRule specifies that points are in the
boundary of a lineal geometry iff

not representable on the Cartesian plane. 
Contains classes and interfaces implementing fundamental computational geometry algorithms.
There are many approaches to dealing with the problem of robustness in geometrical computation. Not surprisingly, most robust algorithms are substantially more complex and less performant than the nonrobust versions. Fortunately, JTS is sensitive to robustness problems in only a few key functions (such as line intersection and the pointinpolygon test). There are efficient robust algorithms available for these functions, and these algorithms are implemented in JTS.
The obvious naive algorithm for intersection detection (comparing every segment with every other) has unacceptably slow performance. There is a large literature of faster algorithms for intersection detection. Unfortunately, many of them involve substantial code complexity. JTS tries to balance code simplicity with performance gains. It uses some simple techniques to produce substantial performance gains for common types of input data.
