Geometry service Project method

The Project method transforms an array of geometries from their current spatial reference to a destination spatial reference.

Project(SpatialReference InSpatialReference, SpatialReference OutSpatialReference, boolean TransformForward, GeoTransformation Transformation, Envelope Extent, Geometry[] InGeometryArray)




The SpatialReference of the geometries in InGeometryArray. The current spatial reference. Cannot be null.


The SpatialReference of the geometry returned from the project operation. The destination spatial reference. Cannot be null.


(optional) A boolean indicating whether to transform forward (true) or not (false).


(optional) An instance of a GeoTransformation must also specify forward or reverse. For a list of valid WKID codes for transformations, see the discussion Finding a Well-Known ID.


(optional) An extent Envelope which will optimize the projection operation by checking if the Envelope is completely contained in the horizon.


The array of geometries to be projected. All geometries are assumed to be in the coordinate system defined by InSpatialReference.

Return Value

An array of Geometry (Geometry[]).


The Project method applies the projection OutSpatialReference to a copy of each element of InGeometryArray and places the result in an output Geometry array. All inputs are assumed to be in the spatial reference InSpatialReference which cannot be null. The input geometries are not modified. The input array can contain mixed top-level geometry types (specifically points, multipoints, polylines, and polygons). The input array can also contain envelopes. If Extent is specified, then all input geometries are then assumed to be contained in it.

The SpatialReference property for all returned geometry will be null. It is the consumer's responsibility to assign the spatial reference to each geometry returned, if desired. In this case, the spatial reference is assumed to be the output spatial reference defined for the Project operation.

If Transformation is not specified, a search is made through a set of default GeoTransformations. Currently, the following transformations are in that set:
