# equals

Check if two geometries are equal to within some tolerance. This function performs a lightweight comparison of two geometries, such as might be useful when writing test code. It uses the tolerance to compare each of x, y, and any other values the geometries possess (such as z or m) independently in the manner: abs(value1 - value2) <= tolerance. Returns true if the difference of each is within the tolerance and all other properties of the geometries are exactly equal (spatial reference, vertex count, etc.). A single tolerance is used even if the units for the horizontal coordinates and other values differ, e.g horizontal coordinates in degrees and vertical coordinates in meters. This function does not respect modular arithmetic of spatial references which wrap around, so longitudes of -180 and +180 degrees are considered to differ by 360 degrees. Returns false if an error occurs. For topological equality, use relational operators instead of this function. See GeometryEngine.equals(Geometry, Geometry).

#### Return

True if the geometries are equal, within the tolerance, otherwise false.
