Trouble with normalUtils/normalizeCentralMeridian()

Question asked by mshah12 on Apr 11, 2018



I am trying to use the normalizeCentralMeridian method to normalize the coordinates over dateline. I have the following code:


var rings = JSON.stringify(evt.geometry.rings);

var genoms = new Extent(evt.geometry.rings);  //I have also tested making genoms of type new Geometry with the same //outcome

console.log("genoms: ", genoms);

console.log("before normalizeUtils.normalizeCentralMeridian()");



evt.geometry.rings is an array object. Printing it out gives me the following: 





Printing out genoms gives me the following:


    1. Array(5)
      1. 0:(2) [-231.97361670477855, 37.030176591569784]
      2. 1:(2) [-231.55174142868816, 37.030176591569784]
      3. 2:(2) [-231.55174142868816, 36.907130250716335]
      4. 3:(2) [-231.97361670477855, 36.907130250716335]
      5. 4:(2) [-231.97361670477855, 37.030176591569784]

      5. latestVcsWkid:undefined
      6. latestWkid:null
      7. vcsWkid:undefined
      8. wkid:4326
      9. wkt:(...)


**ignore the changes in the x, and y coordinates, I had to draw the area of interest on the map again after refreshing the application**


I want to be able to normalize the coordinates so I wanted to use the normalizeCentralMeridian() method (normalizeUtils | API Reference | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.6) but I get an error on the 3rd line of the code above with the message: 



before normalizeUtils.normalizeCentralMeridian()

When you look at the reference page for normalizeUtils, it can take an argument of type Extent because it is a subclass of type Geometry. the wkid property is part of the SpatialReference object but even if I add a wkid property (by doing genoms.wkid = 4326) I get the same error as above.



Has anyone else encountered this issue and can help. Thank you so much!
