An envelope is defined by a pair of x,y coordinates representing the lower-left and upper-right vertices of a rectangular bounding-box. The vertices may optionally contain z coordinates and/or m (measure) values. An envelope is associated with a SpatialReference which specifies the coordinate system.

An envelope is typically used to represent the minimum bounding rectangle for a Geometry or to define a simple area of interest such as a Map's extent. Ordinarily, an envelope is a rectangle whose sides are oriented parallel to the x and y axes. These characteristics allow for simpler construction and manipulation of this object than is possible with a polygon.

An envelope may optionally have a Depth, in which case its geometry is that of a rectangular cuboid.

Envelopes are based upon the parent Geometry Class. The Geometry Class is immutable which means that you can not change its shape once it is created. If you need to modify an Envelope once it has been created, use the EnvelopeBuilder Class instead. The ToGeometry Method will provide you with the Envelope object.
