# pygplates.GpmlTopologicalNetwork¶

class pygplates.GpmlTopologicalNetwork

A topological deforming network that is resolved from boundary topological sections and interior geometries.

Note

If an interior geometry is a polygon then it becomes an interior rigid block.

New in version 21.

__init__(boundary_sections[, interiors=None])

Create a topological network made from boundary topological sections and interior geometries.

Parameters: boundary_sections (Any sequence such as a list or a tuple) – A sequence of GpmlTopologicalSection elements interiors (Any sequence such as a list or a tuple) – A sequence of GpmlPropertyDelegate elements
topological_network = pygplates.GpmlTopologicalNetwork(boundary_sections, interiors)


Methods

 __init__(boundary_sections, [interiors=None]) Create a topological network made from boundary topological sections and interior geometries. accept_visitor(visitor) Accept a property value visitor so that it can visit this property value. clone() Create a duplicate of this property value (derived) instance, including a recursive copy of any nested property values that this instance might contain. get_boundary_sections() Returns the boundary sections in a sequence that behaves as a python list. get_geometry() Extracts the geometry if this property value contains a geometry. get_interiors() Returns the interior geometries in a sequence that behaves as a python list. get_value([time=0]) Extracts the value, of this possibly time-dependent property value, at the reconstruction time.
get_boundary_sections()

Returns the boundary sections in a sequence that behaves as a python list.

Return type: GpmlTopologicalSectionList

Modifying the returned sequence will modify the internal state of the GpmlTopologicalNetwork instance:

boundary_sections = topological_network.get_boundary_sections()

# Append a section
boundary_sections.append(pygplates.GpmlTopologicalLineSection(...))

get_interiors()

Returns the interior geometries in a sequence that behaves as a python list.

Return type: GpmlPropertyDelegateList

Modifying the returned sequence will modify the internal state of the GpmlTopologicalNetwork instance:

interiors = topological_network.get_interiors()

# Append an interior
interiors.append(pygplates.GpmlPropertyDelegate(...))
