iGeom  the index of the geometry to delete. A value of 1 is a special flag meaning that all geometries should be removed.

void OGRGeometryCollection::segmentize  (  double  dfMaxLength  )  [virtual]

Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.
void OGRGeometryCollection::setCoordinateDimension  (  int  nNewDimension  )  [virtual] 
Set the coordinate dimension.
This method sets the explicit coordinate dimension. Setting the coordinate dimension of a geometry to 2 should zero out any existing Z values. Setting the dimension of a geometry collection will not necessarily affect the children geometries.

Reimplemented from OGRGeometry.
void OGRGeometryCollection::swapXY  (  )  [virtual] 
OGRErr OGRGeometryCollection::transform  (  OGRCoordinateTransformation *  poCT  )  [virtual] 
Apply arbitrary coordinate transformation to geometry.
This method will transform the coordinates of a geometry from their current spatial reference system to a new target spatial reference system. Normally this means reprojecting the vectors, but it could include datum shifts, and changes of units.
Note that this method does not require that the geometry already have a spatial reference system. It will be assumed that they can be treated as having the source spatial reference system of the OGRCoordinateTransformation object, and the actual SRS of the geometry will be ignored. On successful completion the output OGRSpatialReference of the OGRCoordinateTransformation will be assigned to the geometry.
