esriCurveDensifyMethod Constants

The different ways of producing a piecewise linear approximation to a curve.

Constant Value Description
esriCurveDensifyByLength 0 densify parameter is curve length increment. Output line segments will be no longer than this. This method cannot be used when constructing geodesic circles or ellipses.
esriCurveDensifyByAngle 1 densify parameter is angle increment. Line segments will become shorter as the curvature increases. For geodesic ellipses, the angle is with respect to the reference circle.
esriCurveDensifyByDeviation 2 densify parameter is deviation from true curve. Line segments of varying length will be generated. The curve parameter specifies the maximum allowable distance between a line segment and the portion of the curve that it is approximating.
