ArcGIS Runtime for .NET 10.2.7
I am using GeometryEngine.Intersect to find the intersection of two Polylines. The GeometryEngine.Intersects function returns the correct value, however, GeometryEngine.Intersection returns only an empty geometry, not very useful. I expect a MapPoint.
How can I retrieve the intersection point?
Polyline p1 = new Polyline(new List<MapPoint>()
new MapPoint(55.0, 25.0, SpatialReferences.Wgs84),
new MapPoint(57.0, 25.0, SpatialReferences.Wgs84)
Polyline p2 = new Polyline(new List<MapPoint>()
new MapPoint(56.0, 24.0, SpatialReferences.Wgs84),
new MapPoint(56.0, 26.0, SpatialReferences.Wgs84)
if( GeometryEngine.Intersects(p1, p2))
var intersection = GeometryEngine.Intersection(p1, p2);
My guess is that you are getting a MULTILINESTRING EMPTY returned to you, which is a valid geometry, just an empty one. Back when I did ArcObjects programming, the Intersection method had a third parameter that specified the dimension of the product you wanted returned. With your example, asking for a point would return the point you seek while asking for a line would return an empty multilinestring.
Looking at the geometry engine documentation, that doesn't appear to exist anymore. I will have to think about how to work around this.
