IRelationalOperator.Overlaps Method

Indicates if the intersection of the two geometries has the same dimension as one of the input geometries.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function Overlaps ( _
    ByVal other As IGeometry _
) As Boolean
[C#]
public bool Overlaps (
    IGeometry other
);

Description

Two geometries overlap if the region of their intersection is of the same dimension as the geometries involved and is not equivalent to either of the geometries.  Overlaps is a Clementini operator.

Remarks

Only geometries that support the IRelationalOperator interface can be used as input geometries.

Overlaps only applies to polyline/polyline, polygon/polygon and multipoint/multipoint relations.

Two geometries do not overlap if either one is empty.

Overlaps examples. Only "true" relationships are showed in this picture.
