Method Detail 

int getNodeSource(int nodeIndex) throws IOException, AutomationException
The source of the specified node is returned as an esriTinNodeSourceType enumeration. This gives an indication of where the node came from; its origin. If a node has the value esriTinOriginal it was input, as a point or vertex, by a user. All other node source types, with the possible exception of esriTinUnknown, represent those which are software generated. These others include the four super nodes that are added upon initial TIN creation, and densification and intersection nodes added to breaklines. Nodes are added to breaklines, where necessary, in order to make them Delaunay conforming.
If the intersection point between two or more breaklines was input as part of the source data the node source will be set to esriTinOriginal because the software did not need to generate the intersection point. If you need to discover nodes where breaklines intersect, regardless of whether they were software generated, use ITinAdvanced2.GetNodeDegree or ITinNode2.Degree with the EnforcedEdgesOnly option set to TRUE. Returned values greater than two are intersection points. A value of two might be considered an intersection but only if the node is the endpoint of two different breaklines.
TINs do not yet persist node source information. It is only maintained while the TIN is is edit mode. This means after a TIN has been saved to disk, all nodes, except for super nodes, become unknown.

This populates a LongArray with the indices of edges that surround a given node.
The passed LongArray must already have been instantiated.
A single edge interpretation is used. This is where edges between adjacent triangles are shared.

This populates a LongArray with the indices of edges that surround a given node.
The passed LongArray must already have been instantiated.
A Single Edge interpretation is used. This is where edges between adjacent triangles are shared.
For nonsuper nodes, all returned edges have their from node in common with the specified node. In the special case of a super node, the last returned edge will have its to node in common. That returned index will also be flagged using a negative value.

AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void queryNaturalNeighborIndices(IPoint pPoint, ILongArray pNodes) throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns the indices of the nodes that are natural neighbors of the query point. This set represents those the point would connect to if inserted into the triangulation.
If the query point is coincident with an existing node, that nodes neighbors will be returned.

AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void queryTriangleNeighborhoodIndices(IPoint pPoint, ILongArray pTriangles) throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns the indices of all triangles that would be effected if the query point were inserted in the triangulation. These are the triangles whose circumscribed circles contain the query point.
No special attention is paid to the presence of breaklines or whether the query point falls inside the interpolation zone. Triangles connected to super nodes may be included in the returned set.
An empty set will be returned if the query point resides entirely outside the triangulation (including the super node extent).
The passed object that implements ILongArray must have already been instantiated.

AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void queryNeighborsAndWeights(double x, double y, ILongArray pNeighbors, IDoubleArray pWeights) throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns the natural neighbor indices and their normalized weights for the given query point. The weights are based on areastealing, or Sibson, interpolation. There is a one to one correspondence between the index and weight entries placed in the two arrays.
For valid results the TIN should have been constructed using only mass points. It must be Delaunay and have a convex interpolation zone. Breaklines are not taken into consideration.
If the query point is incident to a node only that node's index will be returned along with a weight of 1.0.
Zero neighbors will be reported if a query point falls outside the TIN's interpolation zone.
If a super node is discovered to be a neighbor it will be excluded from consideration. It will not be reported as a neighbor or be included in determining weights.
Both objects implementing the array functionality must be instantiated before being used with this member.

IOException
 If there are interop problems.
AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void getCountedUniqueTagValues(int type, ILongArray[] ppValues, ILongArray[] ppCounts) throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns an array of integers containing all the tag values used for the given element type  node, edge, or triangle. An additional returned array reports the number of elements that have been assigned a particular tag. The indices of the two arrays correspond with one another. So, the first element of the count array indicates the number of elements that have been assigned the value of the of the first element in the tag value array.
The arrays can potentially be as large as the number of elements. It's a good idea to check how many unique values there are using UniqueTagValueCount before executing this function.
When an edge is assigned a tag the corresponding edge in the adjacent triangle is automatically assigned the same tag. So, even though you only assigned one unique tag to an individual edge the reported element count for that tag will reported as two. The only exception is with super edges where there are no adjacent triangles with corresponding edges.
The returned tag values will be sorted in ascending order if the TIN has been created by, or saved/copied by the 8.1 version of this software or later. The tag values might otherwise not be sorted.
The arrays will be set to Null ('Nothing' in VB) if the TIN has no tags related to the specified element type.
Note as soon as one element is assigned a tag all the other elements of the same type are given the default tag of 0. So, if you only assign a one nonzero tag to one element you will find two values reported by this member, 0 and the value you assigned.

AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.double getNaturalNeighborZ(double x, double y) throws IOException, AutomationException
The returned height is based on natural neighbor interpolation. This scheme finds the closest nodes in all directions, the ones that would be connected to if the query point were inserted in the triangulation, and applies an area based weighting scheme to them.
Hard breaklines and the TIN data area boundary constrain the neighbor search. Data on the opposite side of these boundaries, relative to the query point, are excluded from consideration. Therefore, the surface is continuously smooth except across hard breaklines and at the data area boundary. Hard breaklines constitute an abrupt change in slope.
The z value returned when the query point falls outside the interpolation zone is NODATA (or notanumber, NaN). You can determine if this is the case by passing it to ITinAdvanced.IsVoidZ or ISurface.IsVoidZ.

AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void convertToPolylines(IFeatureClass pFeatureClass, ITinDynamicFilter pFilter, Object pFieldName) throws IOException, AutomationException
Extracts embedded TIN polylines and writes them out to the specified feature class.
The specified feature class must exist and be polyline based.
If the feature class is Z enabled the polylines written to it will be 3D, otherwise they will be 2D.
The specified filter must be edge based (e.g. TinEdgeTypeFilter) and implement ITinDynamicFilter. You can use ITinEdgeTypeFilter2 with its RegularEdgesExcluded property set to TRUE to extract hard and soft breaklines as polyline features.
A field will be added to the feature class and is used to store a numeric code for the output features. In the case of edge type, a value of 1 is used for soft breaklines and 2 for hard. The added field will be called 'Code' unless you provide a different name via the optional field name argument.
Do not have WorkspaceEdit turned on as this member needs to add fields to the output feature class, a schema edit operation that WorkspaceEdit does not permit.

AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void saveAsVersion(String newName, int ver, Object pOverWrite) throws IOException, AutomationException
Saves the TIN to disk using the format, or version, specified by esriTinVersion.
If you need a TIN that is backwards compatible with ArcINFO Workstation, ArcView 3.x, and versions of ArcGIS 9.3.1 and prior you must use esriTin70001. These packages will not recognized TINs saved using esriTin80001.
If the TIN is Delaunay conforming (see ITin.IsDelaunay, ITinEdit2.SetToConstrainedDelaunay) it can be saved to either esriTin70001 or esriTin80001. If it isn't it can only be saved to esriTin80001. An error will be raised if you attempt to save it to esriTin70001.
If the TIN has edge tag values (see ITin.HasEdgeTags) they will be dropped when saving to esriTin70001.
Node source information (see ITinNode2.Source) will be dropped when saving to esriTin70001.
Some spatial references are not supported with esriTin70001. Those which aren't will be excluded when saving to esriTin70001.
