pygplates.ReconstructedFeatureGeometry

class pygplates.ReconstructedFeatureGeometry

Bases: pygplates.ReconstructionGeometry

The geometry of a feature reconstructed to a geological time.

The reconstruct() function can be used to generate ReconstructedFeatureGeometry instances.

Note

A single feature can have multiple geometry properties, and hence multiple reconstructed feature geometries, associated with it.
Therefore each ReconstructedFeatureGeometry references a different property of the feature via get_property().
__init__()

Raises an exception This class cannot be instantiated from Python

Methods

__init__ Raises an exception
get_feature() Returns the feature associated with this ReconstructedFeatureGeometry.
get_present_day_geometry() Returns the present day geometry.
get_property() Returns the feature property containing the present day (unreconstructed) geometry associated with this ReconstructedFeatureGeometry.
get_reconstructed_geometry() Returns the reconstructed geometry.
get_reconstruction_time() Returns the reconstruction time that this instance was created at.
get_feature()

Returns the feature associated with this ReconstructedFeatureGeometry.

Return type:Feature

Note

Multiple reconstructed feature geometries can be associated with the same feature if that feature has multiple geometry properties.

get_present_day_geometry()

Returns the present day geometry.

Return type:GeometryOnSphere
get_property()

Returns the feature property containing the present day (unreconstructed) geometry associated with this ReconstructedFeatureGeometry.

Return type:Property

This is the Property that the present day geometry and the reconstructed geometry are obtained from.

get_reconstructed_geometry()

Returns the reconstructed geometry.

Return type:GeometryOnSphere
get_reconstruction_time()

Returns the reconstruction time that this instance was created at.

Return type:float
