Implementing SDO_RemovePoint/ST_RemovePoint for Oracle

Tuesday February 17 2009 at 02:59

As I indicated in my article on SDO_SetPoint PostGIS has a ST_SetPoint function that can be used to “Replace(s) point N of linestring with given point”. (And that IBM’s spatial database products have the SE_VertexUpdate() functions.)

PostGIS also has the ST_RemovePoint function that “Removes point from a linestring”. The IBM Spatial Data Blade function is SE_VertexDelete (ST_Geometry, ST_Point) which “deletes a vertex from a geometry”.

Because there is no equivalent function to PostGIS’s ST_RemovePoint in Oracle, I thought I would implement one and add it to my free GEOM PL/SQL package.

Here are the relevant headers:

 

Here is the main body of the functions.

  — Removes point (p_position) from a linestring. Offset is 1-based.
  Function SDO_RemovePoint(p_geometry   IN MDSYS.SDO_Geometry,
                           p_position   IN Number)
    Return MDSYS.SDO_Geometry
  Is
    v_elem_info                MDSYS.SDO_Elem_Info_Array;
    v_ordinates                MDSYS.SDO_Ordinate_Array;
    v_dims                     PLS_INTEGER;
    v_gtype                    PLS_INTEGER;
    v_coords                   PLS_INTEGER; /* Coordinate count after deletion */
    v_position                 NUMBER        := p_position;
    v_end_position             PLS_INTEGER;
    NULL_GEOMETRY              EXCEPTION;
    NOT_LINESTRING_MULTIPOINT  EXCEPTION;
    IS_COMPOUND                EXCEPTION;
    INVALID_POSITION           EXCEPTION;
  Begin
    If ( p_geometry is null ) Then
      Raise NULL_GEOMETRY;
    ElsIf ( Mod(p_geometry.sdo_gtype,10) not in (2,5,6) ) Then
       RAISE NOT_LINESTRING_MULTIPOINT;
    End If;
    If isCompound(p_geometry.sdo_elem_info) Then
       RAISE IS_COMPOUND;
    End If;
    v_dims := TRUNC;
    v_gtype := Mod(p_geometry.sdo_gtype,10);
    v_ordinates := p_geometry.sdo_ordinates;
    v_elem_info := p_geometry.sdo_elem_info;

/* Compute correct positions */ v_end_position := CASE WHEN v_ordinates is null THEN 1 ELSE v_ordinates.COUNT / v_dims END; If ( v_position is NULL or v_position <= 0 ) Then v_position := v_end_position; End If; — Can’t update a point that does not exist…. If Not ( v_position BETWEEN 1 AND v_end_position ) Then RAISE INVALID_POSITION; End If; — First remove coordinate from ordinate array SELECT i.ordinate BULK COLLECT INTO v_ordinates FROM (SELECT Ceil(rownum/v_dims) as coord, rownum – (Ceil(rownum/v_dims) – 1) * v_dims as ord, a.column_value as ordinate FROM TABLE a ) i WHERE i.coord <> v_position ORDER BY coord,ord /* Probably not needed, but just in case */; — Need coordinate count for next checks v_coords := v_ordinates.COUNT / v_dims; — If a single element of a linestring then check we have enough coords */ If ( v_coords = 1 And v_gtype = 2) Then raise ZERO_DIVIDE; End If; — Now, modify sdo_elem_info if needed for multi objects If ( v_gtype in (5,6) ) Then SELECT case when ( f.elem = 1 ) /* Check ordinate value of previous element, if exists, to compute its size */ and ( (( ( f.new_elem_value – lag(f.new_elem_value,3) over (order by f.id) ) / v_dims ) – 1) = 0 ) then 1/0 /* Not enough ordinates to create a proper line */ when ( f.elem = 1 /* Compute size of last element in whole geometry */ And (lead(f.new_elem_value,3) over (order by f.id)) is null ) And ( ( ( f.max_ords – f.new_elem_value + 1 ) / v_dims ) <= 1 ) then 1/0 /* Last element has only 1 coord */ else f.new_elem_value end as elem_Value BULK COLLECT INTO v_elem_info FROM (SELECT rownum as id, e.elem, e.max_ords, case when e.elem = 1 and ( e.elem_value > 1 And e.elem_value > e.ord_position ) then e.elem_value – v_dims /* Calculate new start ord position for this element */ when e.elem = 3 then /* If this is a multi-point geometry, remove one from the point count in interpretation field*/ case when (LAG over (order by e.rin)) = 1 then e.elem_value – 1 else e.elem_value end else e.elem_value end as new_elem_value FROM (SELECT rownum as rin, (( v_position – 1 ) * v_dims) + 1 as ord_position, ( v_coords * v_dims) as max_ords, rownum – (Ceil(rownum/3) – 1) * 3 as elem, a.column_value as elem_value FROM TABLE a ) e ) f; End If; Return MDSYS.SDO_Geometry(p_geometry.sdo_gtype, p_geometry.sdo_srid, p_geometry.sdo_point, v_elem_info, v_ordinates); EXCEPTION WHEN NULL_GEOMETRY Then raise_application_error(CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_i_null_geometry, CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_s_null_geometry,TRUE); RETURN p_geometry; WHEN NOT_LINESTRING_MULTIPOINT THEN raise_application_error(CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_i_not_line,CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_s_not_line || ‘ / ‘ || CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_s_not_point,true); RETURN p_geometry; WHEN IS_COMPOUND THEN raise_application_error(CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_i_cmpnd_vector,CODESYS.CONSTANTS.c_s_cmpnd_vector,true); RETURN p_geometry; WHEN ZERO_DIVIDE THEN raise_application_error(-20001,‘point deletion results in an invalid one vertex element.’,true); return p_geometry; WHEN INVALID_POSITION THEN raise_application_error(-20001,‘invalid p_position value’,true); RETURN p_geometry; End SDO_RemovePoint;
/* ST_* Wrapper */ Function ST_RemovePoint(p_geometry IN MDSYS.ST_Geometry, p_position IN Number) Return MDSYS.ST_Geometry Is Begin Return MDSYS.ST_GEOMETRY.FROM_SDO_GEOM( CODESYS.GEOM.SDO_RemovePoint(p_geometry.Get_Sdo_Geom(), p_position)); End ST_RemovePoint;

Note that the IBM and PostGIS function support linestrings only. The functions above support MultiPoint, LineString and MultiLineStrings. The functions do not, as yet, support Polygons, MultiPolygons or geometries with compound elements. I could, of course, modify them to allow for the handling of non-linear geometries, but I have chosen not to in version 1.0. If a user finds the functions useful and wants support for such things then contact me and I will update them.

On to the examples of how to use the functions.
