Geometry.GetDistanceTo method

Computes the minimum distance between this geometry and a specified geometry.

public double GetDistanceTo(IGeometry other)
Parameter Type Description
other IGeometry A geometry to find distance to.

Return Value

If both geometries are not IsEmpty - a distance between closest points of the geometries. If at least one geometry is empty -1 is returned.


exception condition
ArgumentNullException Argument is null.
ArgumentException SpatialReferenceSystem of geometries are not equivalent. You can use SpatialReferenceSystemTransformation in order to convert geometries to the same spatial reference system.
