AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.public void project(ISpatialReference newReferenceSystem) throws IOException, AutomationException
To Project, the geometry needs to have a Spatial Reference set, and not have an UnknownCoordinateSystem. The new spatial reference system passed to the method defines the output coordinate system. If either spatial reference is Unknown, the coordinates are not changed. The Z and measure values are not changed by the Project method.
A geometry is not densified before it is projected. This can lead to the output geometries not reflecting the 'true' shape in the new coordinate system. A straight line in one coordinate system is not necessarily a straight line in a different coordinate system. Use IGeometry2::ProjectEx if you want to densify the geometries while they are projected.
The Project method must be applied on highlevel geometries only. HighLevel geometries are point, multipoint, polyline and polygon. To use this method with lowlevel geometries such as segments (Line, Circular Arc, Elliptic Arc, Bézier Curve), paths or rings, they must be wrapped into highlevel geometry types.
If a geometry is projected to a projected coordinate system that can't represent the geographic area where the geometry is located (or if trying to move an xy coordinate from outside the projected coordinate system back into geographic), the geometry will be set to empty.
Note: This method can only be called upon the top level geometries (Points, Multipoints, Polylines and Polygons). If the from/to spatial references have different geographic coordinate systems, the Project method looks for a GeoTransformationsOperationSet. If the set of Geotransformations is present in memory, Project will use it to perform a geographic/datum Transformation. To use a specific geotransformation, use the IGeometry2::ProjectEx method.

The spatial reference of the GeometryCollection is transferred
(objects projected if necessary) to any objects added to
it. However the spatial reference of the added geometry is not
transferred to the GeometryCollection. Always make sure to set
the spatial reference on the object GeometryCollection prior to add
other geometries to it to avoid creating invalid geometry. For
example, adding geometry objects to a GeometryBag that doesn't have
a welldefined spatial reference will set an undefined spatial
reference to all the objects added to the bag. Using this
GeometryBag may cause unexpected behavior with the
ITopologicalOperator::ConstructUnion method.

Returns the 2D projection of the MultiPatch to the XYPlane. The XYPlane projection of a MultiPatch is called the "XYFootprint" of the MultiPatch. The XYFootprint is used to display MultiPatches in a 2D environment as well as perform simple timeefficient calculations.
To ensure that the XYFootpring is current (this is especially important if you directly modify the XYFootprint or one of the MultiPatch parts), call InvalXYFootprint.

InvalXYFootprint tells the MultiPatch that the XYFootprint it holds may have changed without its knowledge and needs to be recalculated before it can be used. InvalXYFootprint should be called anytime the parts of the MultiPatch are altered without altering the MultiPatch as a whole. Operations which operate on the entire MultiPatch or utilize the MultiPatch interfaces do not require InvalXYFootprint to be called.

public boolean isSimple() throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns TRUE if the geometry is topologically Simple (refer to the discussion for the Simplify method). If the geometry is not Simple, it may be necessary to call Simplify to enforce topological consistency. Editing a geometry can change the IsSimple state of the geometry.
ITopologicalOperator methods must be applied on highlevel geometries only. HighLevel geometries are point, multipoint, polyline and polygon. To use this method with lowlevel geometries such as segments (Line, Circular Arc, Elliptic Arc, Bézier Curve), paths or rings, they must be wrapped into highlevel geometries types.
The xy cluster tolerance value of the geometry's associated spatial reference is used by this method. If the goal of this method is to determine if a geometry can be persisted in an sde (or other integerbased) layer without alteration, you may wish to use the minimum xy cluster tolerance value (ISpatialReferenceTolerance::SetMinimumXYTolerance) before applying this method (don't forget to set it back).

 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.public boolean isKnownSimple() throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns TRUE when the geometry is aware that it is Simple. IsKnownSimple may return FALSE even if the geometry is simple as long as the geometry is not aware of its IsSimple state. Calling either IsSimple or Simplify makes the IsSimple state known to the geometry. Topologically altering the geometry makes the IsKnownSimple state FALSE until the IsSimple state is again checked.
Here is the status of the IsKnownSimple flag in some common situations:
IsKnownSimple = 'False'
 A nonempty newly created geometry. For example, creating a polygon using IPointCollection sets the flag IsKnownSimple = 'false' on that geometry.
 Geometry after projection (IGeometry::Project )
 Geometry after generalization (IPolycurve::Generalize ) or smoothing(IPolycurve::Smooth )

Simplify permanently alters the input geometry, making its definition "topologically legal" with respect to its geometry type:

reference is used during the simplify operation for polylines and
polygons.
This method first looks at the ITopologicalOperator::IsKnownSimple flag before starting processing. If the flag is 'true' then operation is interrupted and the geometry is considered simple. If the flag is 'false' then the geometry consistency is checked and the geometry is updated as needed.

When a polyline/polygon is cut, it is split where it intersects the cutter polyline. Each piece is classified as ‘left of’ or ‘right of’ the cutter. This classification is based on the orientation of the cutter line. Parts of the target polyline that do not intersect the cutting polyline are returned as part of the ‘right of’ result for that input polyline. If a geometry is not cut, the left geometry will be empty.
When using a multipart polyline to cut a single ring of a polyline, the orientation of the polyline paths is important. The cut piece of the ring must be on the same side of each cutting path as defined by the orientation of each path.
This method does not support GeometryBags.

 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.public boolean touches(IGeometry other) throws IOException, AutomationException
Two geometries are said to touch when the intersection of the geometries is nonempty, but the intersection of their interiors is empty. Touches is a Clementini operator. For example, a point touches a polyline only if the point is coincident with one of the polyline end points.
Touches examples. Only "true" relationships are showed in this picture.
Only geometries that support the IRelationalOperator interface can be used as input geometries.
Touch does not apply for point/point comparison.
If either one of the two geometries is empty, the geometries are not touched.

 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.public boolean contains(IGeometry other) throws IOException, AutomationException
The base geometry contains the comparison geometry (other) if the comparison geometry is a subset of the base geometry and the intersection of their interiors is not empty. Therefore a polygon does not contain any part of its 1D boundary. Contains is the opposite operator of Within.
Only geometries that support the IRelationalOperator interface can be used as input geometries.
If geometry1 Contains geometry2, then geometry2 is Within geometry1.
An empty geometry does not contain another geometry. On the other hand, an empty geometry is contained in another geometry, unless the other geometry is empty.
Contains examples. Only "true" relationships are showed in this picture.

 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.public boolean crosses(IGeometry other) throws IOException, AutomationException
Two polylines cross if they share only points in common, at least one of which is not an endpoint. A polyline and an polygon cross if they share a polyline or a point (for vertical line) in common on the interior of the polygon which is not equivalent to the entire polyline. Cross is a Clementini operator.
Only geometries that support the IRelationalOperator interface can be used as input geometries.
Cross only applies to polyline/polyline, polyline/polygon, or polygon/polyline relations.
If either one of the geometries is empty, the geometries do not cross.
Crosses examples. Only "true" relationships are showed in this picture.

 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.public boolean relation(IGeometry other, String relationDescription) throws IOException, AutomationException
Relation allows a general relation defined using the Shape Comparison Language to be determined between two input geometries. The Shape Comparison Language is based on the CalculusBased Method (CBM), as described and defined by Clementini and Felice, but has some extensions specific to working with vertexbased geometries and is fully described in the Technical Documents section of the ArcObjects Developer Help. Please refer to the Shape Comparison Language documentation for proper syntax and available functionality.
Note that at the current release, Relation only operates with straight lines.
Here is a VBA example of using the "RELATE" function to detect overlapping polylines. It assumes two polyline features are selected. G1 and G2 are placeholders for, in this example, the VBA variables r1 and r2.
