# RectangleOutlineGeometry

#### new RectangleOutlineGeometry(options)

A description of the outline of a a cartographic rectangle on an ellipsoid centered at the origin.
Name Type Description
`options` Object Object with the following properties:
Name Type Default Description
`rectangle` Rectangle A cartographic rectangle with north, south, east and west properties in radians.
`ellipsoid` Ellipsoid `Ellipsoid.WGS84` optional The ellipsoid on which the rectangle lies.
`granularity` Number `CesiumMath.RADIANS_PER_DEGREE` optional The distance, in radians, between each latitude and longitude. Determines the number of positions in the buffer.
`height` Number `0.0` optional The height from the surface of the ellipsoid.
`rotation` Number `0.0` optional The rotation of the rectangle, in radians. A positive rotation is counter-clockwise.
`extrudedHeight` Number optional Height of extruded surface.
##### Throws:
• DeveloperError : `options.rectangle.north` must be in the interval [`-Pi/2`, `Pi/2`].
• DeveloperError : `options.rectangle.south` must be in the interval [`-Pi/2`, `Pi/2`].
• DeveloperError : `options.rectangle.east` must be in the interval [`-Pi`, `Pi`].
• DeveloperError : `options.rectangle.west` must be in the interval [`-Pi`, `Pi`].
• DeveloperError : `options.rectangle.north` must be greater than `rectangle.south`.
• DeveloperError : `options.rectangle.east` must be greater than `rectangle.west`.
##### Example:
``````var rectangle = new Cesium.RectangleOutlineGeometry({
ellipsoid : Cesium.Ellipsoid.WGS84,
rectangle : Cesium.Rectangle.fromDegrees(-80.0, 39.0, -74.0, 42.0),
height : 10000.0
});
var geometry = Cesium.RectangleOutlineGeometry.createGeometry(rectangle);``````

### Methods

#### staticRectangleOutlineGeometry.createGeometry(rectangleGeometry) → Geometry

Computes the geometric representation of an outline of an rectangle, including its vertices, indices, and a bounding sphere.
Name Type Description
`rectangleGeometry` RectangleOutlineGeometry A description of the rectangle outline.
##### Returns:
The computed vertices and indices.
