A geometry is the spatial representation of a feature.
QgsGeometry acts as a generic container for geometry objects. QgsGeometry objects are implicitly shared, so making copies of geometries is inexpensive. The geometry container class can also be stored inside a QVariant object.
The actual geometry representation is stored as a QgsAbstractGeometry within the container, and can be accessed via the get() method or set using the set() method. This gives access to the underlying raw geometry primitive, such as the point, line, polygon, curve or other geometry subclasses.

static 
Creates and returns a new geometry engine representing the specified geometry.
A geometry engine is a lowlevel representation of a QgsAbstractGeometry object, optimised for use with external geometry libraries such as GEOS.
QgsGeometryEngine objects provide a mechanism for optimized evaluation of geometric algorithms, including spatial relationships between geometries and operations such as buffers or clipping. QgsGeometryEngine is recommended for use in any performance critical code instead of directly using the equivalent QgsGeometry methods such as QgsGeometry::intersects().
Many methods available in the QgsGeometryEngine class can benefit from prepreparing geometries. For instance, whenever a large number of spatial relationships will be tested (such as calling intersects(), within(), etc) then the geometry should first be prepared by calling prepareGeometry() before performing the tests.
QgsGeometryEngine operations are backed by the GEOS library (https://trac.osgeo.org/geos/).

Definition at line 2455 of file qgsgeometry.cpp.
QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::densifyByDistance  (  double  distance  )  const 
Densifies the geometry by adding regularly placed extra nodes inside each segment so that the maximum distance between any two nodes does not exceed the specified distance.
E.g. specifying a distance 3 would cause the segment [0 0] > [10 0] to be converted to [0 0] > [2.5 0] > [5 0] > [7.5 0] > [10 0], since 3 extra nodes are required on the segment and spacing these at 2.5 increments allows them to be evenly spaced over the segment. If the geometry has z or m values present then these will be linearly interpolated at the added nodes. Curved geometry types are automatically segmentized by this routine.

double QgsGeometry::frechetDistanceDensify  (  const QgsGeometry &  geom,

Returns the Fréchet distance between this geometry and geom, restricted to discrete points for both geometries.
The Fréchet distance is a measure of similarity between curves that takes into account the location and ordering of the points along the curves. Therefore it is often better than the Hausdorff distance.
This function accepts a densifyFraction argument. The function performs a segment densification before computing the discrete Fréchet distance. The densifyFraction parameter sets the fraction by which to densify each segment. Each segment will be split into a number of equallength subsegments, whose fraction of the total length is closest to the given fraction.
This method can be used when the default approximation provided by frechetDistance() is not sufficient. Decreasing the densifyFraction parameter will make the distance returned approach the true Fréchet distance for the geometries.

Returns true
if the geometry is a polygon that is almost an axisparallel rectangle.
The maximumDeviation argument specifes the maximum angle (in degrees) that the polygon edges are allowed to deviate from axis parallel lines.
By default the check will permit polygons with more than 4 edges, so long as the overall shape of the polygon is an axisparallel rectangle (i.e. it is tolerant to rectangles with additional vertices added along the rectangle sides). If simpleRectanglesOnly is set to true
then the method will only return true

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::largestEmptyCircle  (  double  tolerance, 
const QgsGeometry &  boundary = QgsGeometry() 

)  const 
Constructs the Largest Empty Circle for a set of obstacle geometries, up to a specified tolerance.
The Largest Empty Circle is the largest circle which has its center in the convex hull of the obstacles (the boundary), and whose interior does not intersect with any obstacle. The circle center is the point in the interior of the boundary which has the farthest distance from the obstacles (up to tolerance). The circle is determined by the center point and a point lying on an obstacle indicating the circle radius. The implementation uses a successiveapproximation technique over a grid of square cells covering the obstacles and boundary. The grid is refined using a branchandbound algorithm. Point containment and distance are computed in a performant way by using spatial indexes. Returns a twopoint linestring, with one point at the center of the inscribed circle and the other on the boundary of the inscribed circle.

The optional feedback argument can be used to provide cancellation support during the point generation.
The acceptPoint function is used to filter result candidates. If the function returns false

Removes duplicate nodes from the geometry, wherever removing the nodes does not result in a degenerate geometry.
The epsilon parameter specifies the tolerance for coordinates when determining that vertices are identical.
By default, z values are not considered when detecting duplicate nodes. E.g. two nodes with the same x and y coordinate but different z values will still be considered duplicate and one will be removed. If useZValues is true
, then the z values are also tested and nodes with the same x and y but different z will be maintained.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::roundWaves  (  double  wavelength, 
double  amplitude,  
bool  strictWavelength = false 

)  const 
Constructs rounded (sinelike) waves along the boundary of the geometry, with the specified wavelength and amplitude.
By default the wavelength argument is treated as a "maximum wavelength", where the actual wavelength will be dynamically adjusted so that an exact number of waves are created along the boundaries of the geometry. If strictWavelength is set to true
then the wavelength will be used exactly and an incomplete pattern may be used for the final waveform.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::roundWavesRandomized  (  double  minimumWavelength, 
double  maximumWavelength,  
double  minimumAmplitude,  
double  maximumAmplitude,  
unsigned long  seed = 0 

)  const 
Constructs randomized rounded (sinelike) waves along the boundary of the geometry, with the specified wavelength and amplitude ranges.
The minimumWavelength and maximumWavelength arguments set the range for the randomized wavelength. This is evaluated for each individual waveform created along the geometry boundaries, so the resultant geometry will consist of many different wavelengths.
Similarly, the minimumAmplitude and maximumAmplitude arguments define the range for the randomized amplitude of the square components. Randomized amplitude values will be calculated individually for waves placed on each either side of the input geometry boundaries.
Optionally, a specific random seed can be used when generating points. If seed is 0, then a completely random sequence of points will be generated.

)  const 
Operates on a coverage (represented as a list of polygonal geometry with exactly matching edge geometry) to apply a Visvalingam–Whyatt simplification to the edges, reducing complexity in proportion with the provided tolerance, while retaining a valid coverage (no edges will cross or touch after the simplification).
Geometries never disappear, but they may be simplified down to just a triangle. Also, some invalid geoms (such as Polygons which have too few nonrepeated points) will be returned unchanged.
If the input dataset is not a valid coverage due to overlaps, it will still be simplified, but invalid topology such as crossing edges will still be invalid.
tolerance  A tolerance parameter in linear units. 
preserveBoundary  Set to true to preserve the outside edges of the coverage without simplification, or false to allow them to be simplified. 
This method requires a QGIS build based on GEOS 3.12 or later.

)  const 
Smooths a geometry by rounding off corners using the Chaikin algorithm.
This operation roughly doubles the number of vertices in a geometry.
If input geometries contain Z or M values, these will also be smoothed and the output geometry will retain the same dimensionality as the input geometry.
iterations  number of smoothing iterations to run. More iterations results in a smoother geometry 
offset  fraction of line to create new vertices along, between 0 and 1.0, e.g., the default value of 0.25 will create new vertices 25% and 75% along each line segment of the geometry for each iteration. Smaller values result in "tighter" smoothing.

Returns a new geometry with all points or vertices snapped to the closest point of the grid.
If the gridified geometry could not be calculated (or was totally collapsed) an empty geometry will be returned. Note that snapping to grid may generate an invalid geometry in some corner cases. It can also be thought as rounding the edges and it may be useful for removing errors.

QgsGeometry QgsGeometry::subdivide  (  int  maxNodes = 256 , 
const QgsGeometryParameters &  parameters = QgsGeometryParameters() 

)  const 
Subdivides the geometry.
The returned geometry will be a collection containing subdivided parts from the original geometry, where no part has more then the specified maximum number of nodes (maxNodes).
This is useful for dividing a complex geometry into less complex parts, which are better able to be spatially indexed and faster to perform further operations such as intersects on. The returned geometry parts may not be valid and may contain selfintersections.
The minimum allowed value for maxNodes is 8.
Curved geometries will be segmentized before subdivision.
If the input is a NULL geometry, the output will also be a NULL geometry.
If an error was encountered while creating the result, more information can be retrieved by calling lastError() on the returned geometry.
Since QGIS 3.28 the optional parameters argument can be used to specify parameters which control the subdivision results.

If the input is a NULL geometry, the output will also be a NULL geometry.
If an error was encountered while creating the result, more information can be retrieved by calling lastError() on the returned geometry.

Calculates a variable width buffer ("tapered buffer") for a (multi)curve geometry.
The buffer begins at a width of startWidth at the start of each curve, and ends at a width of endWidth. Note that unlike buffer() methods, startWidth and endWidth are the diameter of the buffer at these points, not the radius.
The segments argument specifies the number of segments to approximate quartercircle curves in the buffer.
Non (multi)curve input geometries will return a null output geometry.

bool  transformZ = false 

) 
Transforms this geometry as described by the coordinate transform ct.
The transformation defaults to a forward transform, but the direction can be swapped by setting the direction argument.
By default, zcoordinates are not transformed, even if the coordinate transform includes a vertical datum transformation. To transform zcoordinates, set transformZ to true
. This requires that the z coordinates in the geometry represent height relative to the vertical datum of the source CRS (generally ellipsoidal heights) and are expressed in its vertical units (generally meters).

Transforms the x and y components of the geometry using a QTransform object t.
Optionally, the geometry's z values can be scaled via zScale and translated via zTranslate. Similarly, mvalues can be scaled via mScale and translated via mTranslate.

void QgsGeometry::transformVertices  (  const std::function< QgsPoint(const QgsPoint &) > &  transform  ) 
Transforms the vertices from the geometry in place, applying the transform function to every vertex.
Depending on the transform used, this may result in an invalid geometry.
Transform functions are not permitted to alter the dimensionality of vertices. If a transform which adds (or removes) z/m values is desired, first call the corresponding addZValue() or addMValue() function to change the geometry's dimensionality and then transform.

May be faster than an iterative union on a set of geometries. The returned geometry will be fully noded, i.e. a node will be created at every common intersection of the input geometries. An empty geometry will be returned in the case of errors.
Since QGIS 3.28 the optional parameters argument can be used to specify parameters which control the union results.

The input geometry is the polygonal coverage to access, stored in a geometry collection. All members must be POLYGON or MULTIPOLYGON.
gapWidth  The maximum width of gaps to detect. 
invalidEdges  When there are invalidities in the coverage, will be set with a geometry collection of the same length as the input, with a MULTILINESTRING of the error edges for each invalid polygon, or an EMPTY where the polygon is a valid participant in the coverage.

If no extent is set then the clipping envelope will be automatically calculated. In either case the diagram will be clipped to the larger of the provided envelope OR the envelope surrounding all input nodes.
