Provides access to members that find the 2D distance between two geometries.

#### Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

#### Description

Proximity operators are used to find the distance between two geometries or the distance from a given point to the nearest point on another geometry.

#### Members

Description |
||
---|---|---|

QueryNearestPoint | Copies into 'nearest' a point on this geometry nearest to the input point. | |

ReturnDistance | Returns the minimum distance between two geometries. | |

ReturnNearestPoint | Creates and returns a point on this geometry nearest to the input point. |

#### CoClasses that implement IProximityOperator

CoClasses and Classes | Description |
---|---|

BezierCurve | A cubic Bezier curve defined between two points; optionally has measure, height and ID attributes at each endpoint. |

CircularArc | A portion of a circle that connects two points optionally has measure, height and ID attributes at each endpoint. |

EllipticArc | A portion of the boundary of a 2D ellipse that connects two points; optionally has measure, height and ID attributes at each endpoint. |

Envelope | A rectangle with sides parallel to a coordinate system defining the extent of another geometry; optionally has min and max measure, height and ID attributes. |

GeoEllipse (esriDefenseSolutions) | Its a spheroidal ellipse. |

GeoPolygon (esriDefenseSolutions) | Its a spheroidal polygon. |

GeoPolyline (esriDefenseSolutions) | This is a spheroidal polyline. |

Line | A 2D straight line between a pair of 2D endpoints; can optionally have height, measure and ID attributes at each endpoint. |
